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 4000 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.
