Privateer #1 Designed by Charles Mower
Resembles Long Island Sound Interclub.
Has all fittings and spars plus a suit of sales, including spinnaker.
Hull is mahogany with oak ribs and Douglas fir deck.
Sound with the exception of a few cracked ribs. We have the interior pieces that can be used as patterns.
She is very rare and in need of some TLC.
There are only 5 Long Island Interclubs left. This was the only Privateer made.
Designed by naval architect, Charles D. Mower, and built by Burbach Yacht Company of Fruitport, Michigan.
Intended to combine racing and cruising with a small cabin in addition to a roomy cockpit for afternoon sailing. A combination of keel and center-board with 860 lbs. of outside ballast and extreme draft of 2 feet 6 inches.
The sail plan is high, narrow rig, well inboard, with a permanent backstay. The rig is designed so that shifting backstays are avoided and the boat can be easily handled by one man. The hull has very easy lines and should show a good turn of speed as well as being able and seaworthy.
