Deben 4¾-Tonner – New Design

I have just added another new design – the Deben 4¾-Tonner, inspired by the original Deben 4-tonner, the design of which was commissioned by my father in 1936 from W. M. Blake.

Bringing together the best of traditional style sailboats with modern construction techniques, this new design gives builders the opportunity to construct a traditional long-keel, round-bilge sailboat, based on a truly proven design (35 Debens were built between 1937 and 1960), with the structures simplified and intended for wood/epoxy construction.

In working through the design, I have also put together a list of all the Deben 4-tonners. As time permits, I will also be adding links to original photographs of these boats (where I have them) and news of their current status.
