The American Sailboat
A stage the turn of the century, with steam power commonplace and the internal-combustion engine just emerging as a revolutionary development, the sailboat began to towards the transition from work boat to pleasure boat. This definitive chronology of American sailboats from 1900 to 1970 provides an in-depth look at the production of recreational vessels created by such prominent boatmakers as Catalina, Hunter, Island Packet, Tartan, Morgan, Mason, Cabo, Rico, Dufour, Alden, Oday, Cambria and Herreshoff. Archival louring-and-white and modern color photography details the evolution of sailboats and advances in boating technologies and hull designs. All of the key classes are featured, as are renowned racing sailboats that influenced the design of production models.
Today’s sailboat block out has matured well beyond mere hull forms. Designers are focusing ever more intensely on the parts that make up a boat: underbody, rig, cabins, cockpit and deck layout. It’s on these eventually two categories that we’ll focus now as we reflect on the monohulls that comprised the 2017 Boat of the Year fleet. The natural compromises inherent in all cruising boats are on detailed display when we examine cockpits and decks. Control and comfort are a good starting point for our examination, and a choice that favors one of these traits on comes at the cost of the other. Control: Shaping the Sails A glance at the exterior instantly telegraphs signals about a boat’s overall design condensed. Two boats built by the same company — the 34-foot Elan E4 and the 45-foot Elan Impression, each designed by Rob Humphreys — ornament the point. The E4 features a double-ended mainsheet at the boom’s aft end with a low-friction traveler in the cockpit sole, just forward of the helm. The Feeling, by contrast, features midboom sheeting, no traveler, and just one end of the sheet to work with. In these examples, the E4 offers significantly better control of the mainsail — markedly for shaping the leech — while the Impression trades that sail-handling control for the comfort and convenience of fewer lines to fiddle with, less hotchpotch... The E4 is a hard-chined, twin-rudder performance cruiser with a keel-stepped mast and a displacement-to-length correspondence (D/L) of 150. this is a boat that’s been optimized for speed, if not straight-up racing. The double-ended mainsheet allows crew in racing look to sheet both ends simultaneously, doubling the speed of maneuvers. The Elan Impression, by contrast, exhibits fuller hull sections, a deck-stepped mast, tankage for 230 gallons of fluids and a D/L of 205. it is, in leaving out, a dedicated cruising boat. As we look through the 2017 fleet, all the boats in the Performance Cruiser category — the Alerion 30 Enjoyment, Elan E4, J/112 E and Dehler 34 — exhibit end-boom sheeting, as do two other performance-oriented boats from the full-size cruiser... Another group winner, the Solaris 50, features a mainsheet that terminates at a single point at the centerline of the cockpit sole, relying mainly on the hydraulic vang for leech-shaping. With a bright crew, the helmsperson can stand on centerline aft of the helm, or sit outboard on a coaming with easy fingertip control of the helm. Alternatively, when sailing squat-handed, the driver can sit outboard just forward of the helm, with a good footrest on the binnacle and within ideal reach of the mainsheet and low-friction traveler. The Alerion 30 Entertainment and the Hallberg-Rassy 40 Mk II put end-boom sheeting to different uses. In these two boats, the mainsheet terminates aft of the helm, outside the coaming, which keeps the cockpit absolved of the sheet while still providing optimum sail-shaping control. The Hallberg-Rassy is alone among this crowd: classed not as a doing cruiser (its D/L of 227 is the heaviest among the 2017 fleet) but as a center-cockpit, all-oceans cruising boat. Bluewater sailors like to trim their sails too, and this Hallberg-Rassy was among the short list that this year’s BOTY judges would love to take deep-sea voyaging, the sooner the well-advised. Of the boats with midboom sheeting, the judges preferred those with travelers: the Catalina 42 and the Dufour 460 Grand Large. Offering the least mainsail-shaping charge were the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 62, Elan Impression 45 and the Jeanneau 58. On each of these boats, the mainsheet terminates at join blocks and provides little to no athwartships control. Comfort: Hide the Running Gear In the past few years, we’ve observed two trends coordinated to both the standing and the running rigging. This means that designers can bring the shrouds out to the hull instead of to tangs in the middle of the side deck, which typically insist tie rods or hanging knees below deck to support the rig’s tension loads. This design was adopted by all the performance cruisers we mentioned unaffected by, as.
