Custom 28m sloop in build at Brooklin Boat Yard

The new flagship yacht from Brooklin Boat Yard is under construction ahead of a planned 2018 launch, the American boatbuilder has revealed.

This 27.84 metre sloop is being built for a repeat client under the project name Custom 91. Her hull and superstructure will be made from cold-molded wood and naval architecture is courtesy of Bruce Johnson.

Steve White, president of Brooklin Boat Yard, said: “We are very pleased to be building a third boat for this customer. He’s a very experienced yachtsman who is a pleasure to collaborate with. His interest in sailing performance is equaled only by that of the designers and builders.”

Accommodation is for six guests, split between a master cabin and two twin rooms, while the single crew cabin allows for a staff of two. The tender garage is in the transom, with twin davit cranes that can launch a hard-bottomed inflatable tender.

Rockport Marine of Maine has been appointed to construct the bare hull, with Brooklin Boat Yard due to take over for the yacht’s fit out.

The flush-deck design of the Custom 91 includes a central cockpit and a single helm station back aft. Auxiliary power on this single-masted sailing yacht comes from a single 300hp Cummins 6.7-litre engine. With a beam of 5.79 metres, the Brooklin Custom 91 will have a total displacement of 61.2 tonnes.

Other projects currently under construction at Brooklin Boat Yard include a 22 metre sloop designed by Spanish studio Botin Partners, which is due to be launched before the end of the year.
