Whale II was the first 40 built from the mold.
Strongly built custom blue water cruiser. Modified full keel. Very short overhangs with slight reverse stern and swim platform. Cutter rig. Dual spreader tapered mast with running backstays. Fiberglass hull with flush cold molded mahogany decks. Looks like a giant J/24 from a distance.
5'6" draft, 35' waterline, 24,000lbs Disp.
The long waterline makes her hull speed pretty high. Interior is beautifully done, but all Creekmores were custom and I have seen a great variation in finish quality and rigging. Strength of construction is immense. At least one Creekmore 40 was built as a fin keel.
Flush deck takes some geting used to. Lots of hatches to let the light in. No where to sit when on deck, but OTOH, easy access to everything. Some blisters which have been opened, filled and sealed.
Overall Satisfation:
So far it's been great. A work of art which can (and will) sail anywhere.

Pros: sails well, built strong, very roomy, lotsa storage
Cons: a bit over built (weight)- was difficult to repower

My Creekmore was a modified 34 making it 36' it had a MD11C Volvo Diesel which died beyond repair the new Volvos didnt fit in the available space in the keel so I had to move the engine bed foward in the boat. Although this was difficult I am happy with my new Yanmar and I've since won my class in the Columbus Day regatta and was first monohaul on corrected time in the Miami to Key largo race, perhaps centering the weight of the engine further foward helped.
