Re: Updated Offshore Cruising Boat List - January 2008
The following boats should be added which are all variations on the Whitby 42 designed by Ted Brewer:
Brewer 12.8 - Redesign of Whitby 42 by Ted Brewer and built by Fort Myers Yacht & Shipbuilding. Changes included Cutter rig instead of ketch rig, combination keel centerboard instead of full keel, slightly different dimensions. These boats were commissioned by a group from the Knickerbocker Yacht Club, LI for the express purpose of sailing in the Bahamas.
Whitby 55 - This was an extended version of the Whitby 42 built by Whitby Boatworks, ON, CAN. There were only a small number built.
Brewer 42 - This boat is listed as CAN in your list. This is incorrect, it was built in the US by Ft. Meyers but is the same design as the Whitby 42 built by Whitby Boatworks.
Brewer 44 - This is another redesign of the Whitby 42 by Ted Brewer and built by Ft. Meyers, not Whitby Boatworks. 2' were added to the LOA which incorporated a sugar scoop transom, a fin keel with skeg-hung rudder, and some boats were rigged as Cutters while others as ketches. The additional 2' allowed for a larger owner's aft stateroom.
LI Sound, Florida, Bahamas
Looking for Whitby 42 or ?
