Original Owner - Never been raced - lightly used - SK #62
L. Francis Herreshoff was partial to the advantages of comparatively shallow draft designs. To compensate for this he employed longer waterlines, easily driven body plans and sensible, moderate-sized rigs and sail plans. The Stuart Knockabout is a splendid example of these basic design principles. She is exceptionally fast and a joy to sail. She also has surprising power and is not slowed perceptibly by an oncoming sea. She is comfortable and forgiving and with every unnecessary piece of complicated gear absent , what is left is an uncluttered , simple , easily handled vessel.
In building each Stuart Knockabout we have endeavored to preserve the essence of the original wooden boat and advance the comfort and sailing performance in a more forgiving and easier to maintain version.
Stuart Knockabouts are used in PHRF racing and there are a few fleets for class racing popping up on the East Coast.
