This design combines maximum of seaworthiness with minimum of cost.

The "First Mate" is just what the name implies; a small cruising sailboat that the first mate can handle without any trouble. Built on the heavy side for a boat of her size, she is an exceptional small sail boat. Rough water doesn’t seem to bother her and she is at home in smooth water also. This boat can be built with an auxiliary motor if desired, but a 10 HP outboard hung over the transom can get you home any time when the wind dies. The "First Mate" is designed for one who wants maximum seaworthiness with a minimum of cost. She is not too expensive to build and can be used for overnight cruising with comfort.
