Jaan - Bermuda 40 Yawl

“The Bermuda 40 was designed by Bill Tripp and built by Henry R. Hinckley in fiberglass. Production began in 1959… [She] is a centerboarder, a major reason for its longstanding appeal. Though not terribly beamy by today’s standards, the B 40’s 11-foot, 9-inch beam is substantial. Similarly, the interior is not considered very spacious by today’s standards, but it had the room of a 1960’s wooden 50-footer…It is no surprise that a combination of Hinckley quality and Tripp seaworthiness produced a boat that boasts the longest-running production span of any fiberglass auxiliary sailboat – 32 years when hull #203 was launched in 1991” - “Heart of Glass: Fiberglass Boats and the Men Who Made Them” by Daniel Spurr, published by International Marine / McGraw Hill, 2000, p. 160-169.
