Design Elements

The design was originally commissioned by Tom Fisher of Detroit whose objective was a fast cruiser, capable of beating the 12 meters of the day on a boat-for-boat basis. Specifically, he had ideas of being consistently first to finish in New York Yacht Club cruises, which of course meant getting there ahead of the 12's. However, since his home waters were to be Lake St. Clair, he imposed the stringent draft restriction of eight feet.

She is now a capable luxurious performance cruising boat that is both well appointed and outfitted. She has undergone significant structural and interior finishing improvements over the past 10-15 years.
