Maine yard to build cruising sloop

Sep 9, 2015 by Guest Writer

Brooklin Boat Yard of Brooklin, Maine, was selected by the Spanish yacht design firm Botin Partners to build a 72-foot (22m) cruising design sloop. The boat will be built of wood, carbon fiber, foam and epoxy composite construction.

The Botin 22 will be similar in hull shape and sail plan to today’s modern racing boats with an extended bowsprit, plumb bow, wide beam running well aft, T-bulb (lifting) keel and twin rudders. Construction has started and launching is anticipated for late fall next year.
