82’ Spirit of Tradition Sloop

  Brooklin Boat Yard is pleased to introduce an 82’ cruising sloop with classic lines that respects the design aesthetic of Joel White, the yard’s late founder and prominent designer. “The importance of design was engrained in me early on” says Steve White, son of Joel White and company President. “We have a team of in-house designers working to create workable solutions and shop drawings in support of the various designers’ clients who we are currently building boats for. I thought it important to challenge the team and demonstrate our own creative capabilities, generating designs that exemplify our philosophy: designs that are attractive and classic in style but with modern underbodies and appendages and modern sail handling: designs that are efficient to sail or power and designs that are efficient to construct.” This first is the attached 82’ sloop that got her inspiration from a 74’ ketch named Dragonera that Joel designed in 1992.  She is a flush deck, pilothouse design.  She was intended to be an all-around, ocean going cruiser with a good turn of speed.  She is still owned by her original owner and has traveled back and forth from Maine to the southern oceans every year of her nearly 25 year life span, and is ready to go for another 25 at least. The new 82’ sloop is a twin cockpit design with slightly raised pilothouse for additional light down below. The interior layout has the Owner forward with island berth and three additional guest cabins each with heads and separate showers. The main cabin has an open galley for social interaction, generous dining table and... read more

Botin 22m Sloop

Brooklin Boat Yard is constructing a new 22-meter yacht designed by Spanish firm Botin Partners. This boat is built of wood, carbon fiber, foam and epoxy composites. In hull shape and sail plan the Botin 22 will be very similar to many of today’s modern racing boats with extended bow sprit, plumb bow, wide beam running well aft, T-bulb (lifting) keel and twin rudders. Unlike today’s stripped-out racing yachts, the Botin 22 will be built with interior accommodations and cruising amenities that will allow her owner, family and guests to cruise the world’s oceans in comfort, style and speed. Botin Partners is perhaps best known for their work with modern race boat design having been responsible for many of today’s successful box rule racers like TP52s, Class 40s, Volvo 70s, HPR/IRC 44s & IRC 52s. Botin Partners has had equally great success in the world of cruising sailboats with designs that marry high performance with comfort and style such as the Grand Soliel 37, 40, 43, 46 & 50, the Murtic 52 and other custom one-off projects. Construction on the Botin 22m began in August 2015. She will launch in late Fall of... read more
