Palmer Johnson NY40

I was wondering if anyone had any info on the Palmer Johnson NY40. It's sailing characteristics, ability to cruise, construction- cored or solid? There are a few listed which are pretty reasonable in price for what appears to be a pretty nice 40' boat.

Hi RTMADMAN,

I see you did not get any answers, here. I, too, would be interested in buying one of them and cannot find any info. Did you have any more luck somewhere else?

BTW- I beleive the NY40 is 40' LWL not LOA. I beleive it is in the neighborhood of 50'+ LOA.

T34C, I'm not so sure of that. We had an NY 36 in the early 90s, and I remember racing against the NY40s and though clearly much bigger boats than ours, they were in the 40 foot range as I recall.

OK, now I have to agree that's a great looking boat. For the money I'd sure look at it. Thanks JRP-

With a PHRF of 90 she is pretty quick too.

although i can't speak to this boat specifically, i can tell you the PJ boats (especially the aluminum hulled boats. were smoking fast..usually critically spartan down below usually pipe berths, and lots and lots of canvas. apparently this beauty doesn't suffer 'raceritis')
she is also a head turner..no bout adoubt it.
if i had a half dozen guaranteed crew, i'd snatch this baby up in a heartbeat.

Until very recently all PJ boats were completely custom. While I'm sure you are correct in your description, there is will be significant variation from boat to boat based on owner preferences.

T34C,

I think you are correct in general about PJ boats.

However, the NY40 was a one-design fleet commissioned by the New York Yacht Club in the mid-late-1970s. The design was penned by Doug Peterson, the hulls laid-up by New Orleans Marine, and the rest of the boat completed by Palmer Johnson. They were fairly tightly standardized, to begin with anyway. That doesn't mean changes haven't been made to them since then...

The NYYC has taken a similar one-design approach in the past, including with the NY36 (from the 1980s, a Bill Cook designed, W.D. Schock-built) and the current NYYC42 built by Nautor Swan.
