Design 2235 - 1/4-Tonner

I looks like at least two boats were built to this design by South Hants Marine of England and launched around 1975.  The boats were built using C-Flex, a type of fiberglass "planking" that was developed by Seemann Composite Inc. in the early 1970s. It's made up of flattened longitudinal glass rods with roving in between, woven together with a light fiberglass cloth to keep things in position, and this allows it to be worked on the bias to create compound surfaces.

Here is the general arrangement.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 27'-10"
LWL 20'-0"
Beam 7'-0"
Draft 4'-11"
Displacement 4,634 lbs
Ballast 1,700 lbs
Sail Area 288 sq ft


  1. Displacement ? Ballast ? sail area ?

  2. Interesting boat. I'd like to know that, too.
