L. Francis Herreshoff created this design in 1932 at the request of a client desiring a large shallow draft daysailer incor- porating ease of handling, excitement of speed, and capacity and comfort for crew. The result was a joy to single-hand or sail with friends for either uncompromising leisure or spirited competition. Her moderate rig, light helm, open cockpit and uncluttered deck enable easy handling, yet her long sweeping hull design exhibits surprising speed and agility in a variety of wind conditions.
In building each Stuart Knockabout, we have endeavored to preserve the essence of the original wooden boat and advance the comfort and sailing performance in a more forgiving and easier to maintain version. The foam cored fiberglass hull construc- tion is light and durable, her varnished teak trim is eye-catching and compliments the elegance and simplicity of her lines.Equipment Included
