Ginger is a 50-foot daysailer smack in the middle the Spirit-of-Tradition narrative. She’s a mix of a long, low sheer right out of classic dayboats from the 1930’s, with efficient modern appendages, carbon spars and hardware. The key here is the sexily modern ergonomic cockpit and contemporary sail inventory. Our favorite touch? The super-clean deck, brought about by running most lines belowdeck through carefully-routed conduits.
