Schooner 721 sq.ft.

Production 1975 - 1981
The DownEaster was in fact a 41' boat that came standard as a cutter
with the option of a ketch
or schooner rig. She was full keel
. She came standard with a Farymann diesel
with a range of about 730 miles. Her interior
offered a fixed table with settees port and starboard with a double berth created when the back of the port settee is swung upwards. An optional arrangement allows for a U-shaped dinette that converts to a double berth or a second option replaces the navigation
station starboard aft, via a door, into an aft stateroom with a double berth. These changes did not alter the exterior profile. Her interior
also offered an abundance of teak
trim. The DownEaster 38 was the first model DownEaster manufactured and kept her going until closing in 1981.
I also have the drawings for the 32, the 38 and the 45, if you are interested.
