Van de Stadt Design

Not sure if this has been posted, but they look like interesting blue water cruisers. They can build aluminum hulls and retracting keels across a broad range of sizes.

They also have what they call a "SwingRig" in which the mast rotates. Can't imagine that makes for a water tight deck. But they claim as a result, their main sails can keep up with rigs using spinnakers.
