Fractional Rigs

Is there a place to find a list of boats with fractional rigs? They seem to have many advantages, but not very popular. Thanks for any info.

Fractional Rigs

I do not know of a central data base that would list boats by rig, but fractional rigs are generally more popular with companies based in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and on the US West Coast. They have had various periods of popularity. They were the predominant rig historically until the CCA racing rule change in the early 1950''s gave masthead rigs an unfair racing advantage. They had a brief revival in the mid-1970''s and early 1980''s and they are very popular on modern designs of today.
