Atlantic Boat Launches a 26-foot launch for the Larchmont Yacht Club of New York.

thousands of pictures of traditional boats, and his own experience as a tall ship sailor. ADVENTURESS will be on view at the Fife Rendezvous in Camden, August 1; the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta out of Brooklin, August 4; Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show in Rockland, August 10-12; the Opera House Cup out of Nantucket, MA, August 19; and the Newport International Boat Show, in Newport, RI, September 13-16. Originally launched in Scottish waters, ADVENTURESS came to be favored by royalty, senators and a former U.S. president over the decades. ADVENTURESS has crossed the Atlantic at least 15 times, and was seized by German military during World War II.

Atlantic Boat Company of Brooklin just launched the Larchmont Yacht Club’s LYC IX, a 24-foot passenger USCG Certi- fi ed Launch.

In 2006, the U.S. Coast Guard increased

the weight per-person ratio for its certifi ed passenger launches, which became effective this year. The USCG changed their weight limit from 140 lbs. per person to 185 lbs. and this has had many yacht clubs and marinas facing a dramatic reduction in passenger capacity. Those that

independent marine surveyor, an engineer, and the USCG each performed stability tests to confi rm the passenger capacity and sea- worthiness of the newly-designed launch. Larchmont Yacht Club’s Waterfront

Director, Lincoln White states, “A solid launch tender is what sums up our choice of the DUFFY-26 Launch. Extremely well crafted, excellent customer support, and a beautifully fi nished product are reasons we chose her over other launch manufacturers.” Certifi ed as open launches, canopied launches, and enclosed launches the 24 + 1 passenger DUFFY-26 Launch is built to a high standard to meet customer’s needs. Every boat comes standard with all safety and running equipment and is delivered ready for operation.

One of the busiest boatbuilders on the

coast is S. W. Boatworks in Lamoine. They just received a couple of new orders, which is over and above the Calvin Beal 38 that they are fi nishing out as a yacht. In January they will start work on a

Wesmac 46, which they will fi nish out as a lobster boat for a fi sherman from Stoning- ton.

They have a Calvin Beal 34 hull being formerly carried 24

passengers, the new regulations would low- er this to approximately 18 persons. With this new ruling, and knowing that the DUFFY 26 hull, with its rugged construction, fi ne fi nish, and ease of main- tenance could manage this duty, Atlantic Boat introduced the DUFFY-26 Launch. An

fi nished off as a sportfi sherman for a custom- er from Scituate, MA/Belfast. This project will be started in February.

They also have work to do on small power boat, which has been out of the water for a couple of years. A skiff is in and she needs a little cosmetic work and an electric pot hauler installed.
