The limited overhang of the bow is key to the YOD’s success as a light displacement boat designed for rough water.
“The plans show very clearly why she is a fast boat. Note the long, easy diagonals.”
“Note in the cross sections, the tapered frames, method of fastening them in the floors, sloping washboards, and folding seats.”
There are a variety of plans available for the Yankee One Design Class.
