Zephyr is a racing sailboat fulfilling rrequirements for the 14-ft International Dinghy Class. Lightweight, strong, compact hull, maximum waterline length for competition or thrilling sailing speeds of over 15 mph. Will outsail boats twice her length and will keep going in rough waters. Zephyr is a refinement of a type of boat developed by the English for use in the rough open waters of the English Channel. Not only is it fast under sail, but it can stand up under punishment. And it’s light enough to be easily loaded atop an auto or light trailer. Construction is with a convex bottom with developed surfaces; adapted to plywood covering. The pre-fab method of construction used on Zephyr lends itself to mass production.
