Based on the Dark Harbor 12 designed by B.B. Crowninshield in the early part of the 20th Century, this design has an updated underwater shape and construction method.
She is very much a mini J class. With a 12' waterline and overall length of over 20' she has elegantly long overhangs which hark back to a bygone era of sailing. Construction is for modern strip planking using Western Red Cedar over computer faired moulds.
