Design 2479 - Falmouth Marine 45'

This preliminary design was prepared for Falmouth Marine of Falmouth, Massachusetts. The design was for a very conservative cruising boat that was to be built of fiberglass. The year was 1984.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 45'-0"
LWL 36'-0"
Beam 13'-6"
Draft 8'-0"


  1. I just don't see this boat as "a very conservative cruising boat", given the year 1984. Would not "a very conservative cruising boat" have had somewhat less than 8' draft, and a positive transom? Of course you haven't told us her displacement or her sail area. I note that her ends are somewhat more full than those of an aggressive race boat, but.... Am I looking at the boat you're talking about?

  2. I failed to say that I do really like this boat, though.
