I was curious about the boat that I did not knew and found out that the boat was built for a long time and only the first versions were made of wood. The designer Arvid Laurin designed a new boat in fiberglass in 1960:

"In their search for a suitable plug, they chose "Casella II" an Arvid Laurin design - which had participated in the Transatlantic Race from Bermuda to Gothenburg n 1960, arranged to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of GKSS (Gothenburg's Royal Yacht Club). Her owner - Yngve Cassel - was approached and for a fee he agreed to have his boat used as a full-scale mould

Somehow Arvid Laurin got wind of this plan and pointed out to MFI, that it was not recommendable to build a glass fibre version of an old design, when he could draw them a better and faster one, especially designed to take advantage of the flexibility of glass fiber construction. MFI agreed and Arvid Laurin set out to do something quite new to him, drawing a 32' boat that would not be built of wood but in a much more flexible material allowing curvatures that previously had been impossible."


Laurin 32

The last versions used cored hulls for superior stiffness and less weight. A very interesting boat that should have been very fast in its days and that today if well sailed can still have a relatively good performance. A nice one too:





I saw also that the boat has been used extensively for offshore sailing and have circumnavigated several times:

Blue Water

Regarding the Corona, the one that is doing the ARC. here you have the boat blog:

They are not young, but great sailors no doubt:

Pretty boat, reminds me of a Tumlaren like Adlard Coles Cohoe, but not quite as lean.

Can't very well expect you guys to get a feel for the design if I don't post those numbers.




Beautiful Bob, just beautiful. The layout is great as well, good galley as yours always are and not cramming 2 heads in makes it very spacious. The only layout change I would make is for a pullman instead of the V berth. It would lose the direct access from the forward cabin to the head though. That's the advantage of a custom boat though, you get exactly what you desire.

Re: Full Keel

Bob,

The real version is a really lovely boat. You can sort of tell the client is a former Hinckley guy from the portlights and forward trim on the house which carry a faint sent of an H.H past. Really nice piece of work-thank you for sharing that.

Jeff

Re: Full Keel

Jeff:
The other keel versions were just me having fun with Paulo while am amusing myself as I ate my lunch. Think of those as Reuben sandwich keels. Unfortunately I was more emotional about my Reuben than I was about the keels. But I'll try harder to immerse myself emotionally the next time.

Re: Full Keel

Hi Bob.

What a nice looking boat. If it's not too late, I'd like to get on the wanna-be crew list for the first sail. Hope you get good wind.

Good luck, Jim.
