Yes I know, I watched it being built in my harbor. The W class below is even newer! Built this part year. I was just showing how some of the design elements from a bygone era was still popular(not with everybody) today.

Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

I grew up with them, and their junior MORC sisters too, around Marblehead in the '60s

They tended to have shorter masts and longer booms than we see under the later PHRF and especially IOR rules.

And those beautiful overhangs and short waterline lengths (another rule thing I believe) made them hobbyhorsey in a seaway upwind.

Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

Here's another example from Alden. The Caravelle. A 60's design, 12 were built. Some of the Caravelles(glass hulls like their Challengers) had wooden cabins like this one, some had glass cabins.

Extreme overhangs, Caravelles were pretty narrow, 11' beam in 41'+ LOA.

Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

You know, I think the IOR gets a lot of undeserved criticism. The rule went through a lot of evolution over the course of some 20 years, and it's hard to characterize every IOR boat as dangerous or unseaworthy. I like my IOR boat (First 375) just fine, and I bet Swan 38 owners like theirs, too. The Fastnet disaster was as much about a bunch of weekend warriors taking off on a 600 mile ocean race, at a time when weather prediction, offshore communication, and offshore race equipment requirements weren't what they are now, as it was about boat design. There absolutely were some design freaks, and some lightly built race boats that probably didn't belong offshore, but I don't think that is solely restricted to the IOR. I believe the rule eventually died out because owners were getting tired of the new-boat-every-year arms race in a struggling economy, not because of the sailing characteristics of the boats. IOR revival regattas are starting to become pretty popular, although I have to admit that boat design has advanced quite a bit in the ensuing years, and current boats will generally sail circles around similarly sized IOR boats.
All that being said, one of the boats I have always admired, at least for looks, is the Morgan 34.

I know that boat. Always got a long look from me riding in the launch. Sexy.

Bristol 27. Not sure, but, this may be more CCA 'inspired'. Built 1975.

There are a lot of CCA inspired boats that were designed or built to the look or to the rule, but not really as racers. The same conversation people have had about the new European look was had in the 70s and 80s about the IOR look.

Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

Here's another beautiful CCA rule Alden Design, the Pearson Countess 44. Built to the rule but also one of the best real motorsailers ever built, both a good sailor and a good and economical power boat. Of course I'm a bit prejudiced since the one pictured below is mine.

That boat looks very familiar, was the previous owners name Rawson?
