L. Francis Herreshoff was partial to the advantages of comparatively shallow draft designs. He compensated for this factor by employing longer waterlines, easily driven body plans and sensible, moderate-sized rigs and sail plans.
The Stuart Knockabout is a splendid example of these basic design principles. She is exceptionally fast and, therefore, a joy to sail. She also has surprising power and is not slowed perceptibly by an oncoming sea. She is comfortable and forgiving, and with every unnecessary piece of complicated gear absent, what is left is an uncluttered, simple, easily handled thoroughbred.
In building each Stuart Knockabout, we have endeavored to preserve the essence of the original wooden boat and advance the comfort and sailing performance in a more forgiving and easier to maintain version. The foam cored fiberglass hull construction is also lighter and permits the addition of 400 pounds of keel ballast, bringing the completed boat to her designed displacement, thereby increasing her capability to carry sail into a good breeze.
Stuart Knockabouts are great options for PHRF or one-design class racing.
Stuart Knockabout No.71 was built by Edey and Duff in 2006 and lightly used by her first owner with storage inside when not in use. The second owner bought JUBILEE in 2014 and the boat has been sailed lightly since. Yearly maintenance has been preformed on all brightwork and bottom with storage indoors each winter, but has not yet been done for this season. We would recommend the standard varnish and painting work be completed. The boat has new running rigging within the last two years.
Her topsides were given a topcoat of a clear finish to bring back the shine of the original gel-coat.
JUBILEE comes well outfitted with a large suit of sails, including:
Working Main – Quantum/2014
Racing Main – North Sails/2016
100% Jib – Quantum/2014
130% Jib – Quantum/2016
Additional gear includes:
Teak cockpit seats and cushions
Torqeedo outboard and mount
Custom Triad Trailer – Good condition
