Brooklin Boat Yard of Brooklin, Maine is pleased to announce the development of the Joel White 42' Down East Power Cruiser. The design is from from the Joel M. White design collection. Joel White founded Brooklin Boat Yard in 1960. He was a charismatic and accomplished designer, and is credited with the design of numerous popular designs such as the Nutshell Pram, the Marsh Cat, Center Harbor 31 and the W-76 Class. Lesser know are his powerboat designs.
Brooklin Boat Yard is now operated by Joel’s son Steve White. “One boat has been built to this design thus far”, says Steve. He continues “The original boat is kept at the yard and people are always asking about her. This is a great boat for cruising by one couple or a small family. The boat is simple, easy to maintain and gets great fuel economy.”
Brooklin Boat Yard custom designed boats are built to be strong and long lasting. In 1979 the yard started using the WEST system (cold-molded, wood/epoxy) as a construction method and in 1981 began vacuum bagging laminates to produce hulls that are exceptionally light, stiff and strong. The crew of builders, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters and riggers represent the finest craftsmen in the state. We are committed to building the best boats for our customers, on time and on budget. Brooklin Boat Yard has built well over eighty boats since the establishment of the yard in 1960.
