Design 351 - Quick Silver


I do not believe this yawl was ever built although quite a few plans were produced. We pulled these images from the microfiche files so they aren't exactly perfect but are enough to give one an idea of what the boat was all about. It's certainly an interesting outboard profile. The year was 1940.

Here is the general arrangement plan.


The sail plan shown below is quite blurred, but take a look at that square sail.


Principal Dimensions
LOA 65'-1"
LWL 47'-6"
Beam 14'-5"
Draft 9'-5"

    Not only a square sail set from a yard, but a symmetrical (not asymmetrical) triangular stays'l above it, no? What a beautiful boat!

    1. I think the term for that sail is 'raffee'.
