BBY Design 50 Sloop R01

One of the design office’s favorites from the archives, this 62’ sloop was designed in 1994 by Joel White, never made it to production. Design #50, she is based on a balance of simplicity and performance, resulting in a slender hull, with striking lines. Long overhangs, a gentle entry, and a simple doghouse give her a classic look that still has a sleek, fast feel.

The original clients drew inspiration from Vortex, a Swede 55 built in 1990 at Brooklin Boat Yard, adding length to increase the interior space while keeping similar proportions. Her slender shape is drawn from the 30 square-meter sloop owned by the client at the time as well as her high aspect rig, both further accentuating her classic looks.

The interior is suited for two cruising couples; two double berths, a large settee and an open cockpit with a raised helm fill the slim hull, without sacrificing the necessities and ample storage space. The settee converts to an additional double berth and a pilot berth opposite it allows for more crew onboard. Simplicity is the key both for ease of living onboard and sailing. Despite having been designed for a smaller crew, her jib is self-tacking, spinnaker poleless and her main was designed for in-boom furling allowing her  to easily outrun any other boat her size.
