The design features a very light displacement hull on a foundation of maximum waterline and substantial beam, yet balances overall style in the “Spirit of Tradition” genre so proudly owned by the design house. The most notable to the design is the partially enclosed cockpit via all glass surround and hardtop dodger — a centerpiece and the focus towards delivering an absolute hassle free creature-comfort experience on the water. Down below, a simple day-sailing accommodation for the occasional over-night cruise: a lightly appointed galley, an enclosed head and comfortable vee-berth configuration. The dodger is designed to integrate the spaces below […]
Match Racing Concepts 1 & 2
When approached by local sailors to develop a boat for a potential Maine stop on an international match-racing circuit, we responded with these two concepts. Both are light and agile, with sharply different styling, but sharing a common sense of grace and elegance that speaks to Maine’s sailing heritage. Simple to sail, with thoroughbred performance, these yachts would make charming daysailers or club racers.
A dream collaboration with a long-term client. Ginger is pure dayboat; her minimal cuddy encloses roomy storage bins and a marine head. She’s ultra-light with clean lines and a powerful rig that promises high average speeds in all conditions, with planing speeds in the mid-to-high teens off the wind.

Lena was the product of an intense collaborative design process with our client—together we developed this gorgeous sprinter of a yacht. Her innovative cockpit takes full advantage of nearly every inch of the narrow beam. Lena’s light air performance is astonishing, as proven by her collection of silver in regional classic yacht races. Between races, she’s simple and delightful to daysail.

Tendress combines classic good looks, lightweight wood-composite construction, modern rig, and underbody in a delightful new package. Her displacement of less than 8,000 pounds gives her lively performance with a big-boat feel. All lines lead to the cockpit for effortless single-handing. Tendress’ long cockpit with sculpted teak seats will comfortably accommodate a crowd for a sunset cruise. Her traditional cuddy cabin contains amenities for overnighting, while the varnished wood coaming and custom-shaped sheerstrake harken back to the Herreshoff era. Built by: Brooklin Boat Yard
The Signature 24
The Signature 24 is a comfortable and sporty daysailer. She features a simple, modern rig with square-top mainsail, zero-emmission electric drive, classic lines mixed with modern performance and full seating for eight adults. Her weight and draft make her trailerable and her mast stepped in the cockpit makes her easily rigged at a launch ramp. Trailerable and easily rigged at a launch ramp. Debuted at the 2018 New England Boat Show, where she was named Top 5 Boats to See. Featured in Sail Magazine as a “Drop Dead” daysailer. The Signature 24 prototype shown in these photos was built by […]
Signature Series 32
Inspired by the graceful—but very wet—International Dragon class, the Signature Series 32 exhibits greater beam and freeboard for a stiffer, drier ride and better top-end speed. Her tall carbon sloop rig is easily handled; all lines lead to winches within easy reach of both helmsperson and racing crew. This more competitive vessel has a below-deck roller-furler that keeps the foredeck clear. In her innovative cockpit comfort is key with ergonomically sculpted seats as delightful to sit on as a favorite park bench. Her compact cuddy gives you just enough room for the essentials with a cozy vee berth for impromptu […]
Signature Series 38
Taking a cue from the timeless and classic “knockabout” lines, the Signature Series 38 features a notably assertive spoon bow and graceful counter. Her signature elliptical transom displays a distinctive and marked tumblehome shape that allows the sheer line to sweep into the taff-rail. Her modern carbon mast and boom, in combination with a simple sloop rig design, delivers high-performance stability. The cockpit is roomy for lounging and sailing with plenty of interior space for daysailing and weekending.
