Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

I may be biased but I agree that they are great looking boats. If you like the look and use them for what they are designed for you will not be disappointed. Rhodes made some great boats that have stood the test of time.

Naaaa - just have a 3 oz. 225% Gennie on board. It would be interesting to see what would happen if someone put a modern high SA/D rig on a boat like that. Adding 6 or 8 feet to the mast would probably perk things right up in light air.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

Hello All,
I was the proud owner of Chesapeake hull 55 1962 and sailed it to Mexico from San Francisco twice. Great boat with very few problems . I was once coming up the coast of California in 20+ foot sea in winter and the Chesapeake came through without any gear failures.
Because of its beauty she was in commercials for Penzoil,Topsider Rolls Royce, Sausalito Art Festival, and Crazy Shirts did there entire catalog on the Chesapeake 32. I sold it for $25,000.00 .I started sailing on her when I was ten years old and bought her for $18,000.00 when I was 16 years old.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

To my eye there is not an ugly line on that boat. This design is the specific design that made me determined to become a yacht designer. I wanted to design things that beautiful. Still trying.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

Hello Bob,
Thank you for your reply.
I guess we both have good taste in yacht design. That is quite the compliment coming from you to Phil Rhodes. I also enjoy your designs and have sailed on a CT 54 from California through the canal ,I deliver Reknow the Cheoy Lee to PV, sailed on many Tayanas one of which won the Oriental Cup in North Carolina. My favorite was the Valliant I raced one from the Sausalito Yacht Club.
Would you ever consider being a speaker for the Wednesday yachtsman luncheon at the Saint Francis YC?
