SONNY has just become available for purchase and as such this is a preliminary listing with basic information. Complete listing details will be published shortly, but in the interim please feel free to contact Brooklin Boat Yard for additional information.

Designed for performance and cruising comfort, SONNY is custom designed by Dieter Empacher and built by Brooklin Boat Yard of Brooklin, Maine.

SONNY marries traditional finishes with modern structures. Her classic hull profile is low and sleek, ending in a stylishly raked transom that incorporates a hydraulically operated, hidden swim platform. The flush deck and low cabin trunk are reminiscent of classic racing yachts in which the foredeck is cleared for sail handling. The keel, designed with maximum lift-todrag ratio, features winglets for greater stability without sacrificing motion comfort. The winglets run almost the full length of the keel and end in sharp corners, which help reduce leeway.

SONNY’s interior is elegantly finished off in the Herreshoff style of white and cream paintwork offset with American cherry joinery and a teak and maple cabin sole. The bright finish of the cold-molded hull interior peeks out in numerous places as a pleasant reminder that this is indeed a wooden boat.

SONNY is ready for cruising with a spacious owner’s stateroom aft plus two double guest staterooms and a captain’s cabin forward. There are three heads and three showers aboard this mini mega-yacht.

SONNY sports a carbon fiber mast and roller furling boom by GMT along with a hydraulic roller furling headsail by Harken. SONNY easily makes over nine knots on the wind, and 12 to 15 knots off the wind. She’s a true racer/cruiser built to last a lifetime by Brooklin Boat Yard
