Description

A spirited descendent of the swiftest boats of the early 20th Century, the W-76 racing yacht was conceived to pay homage to the legendary New York 50s, the thundering J-Class boats, and the nimble 12-Meters. The W-76 was the last of more than fifty distinctive designs from the drawing board of the late Joel White, the naval architect acclaimed for so beautifully reincarnating traditional wooden vessels using the most modern construction techniques. The W-76 is handcrafted in Maine. These award-winning, record-setting Spirit of Tradition racing yachts are fast, race-proven sloops with a bundle of trophies from wins in New England, the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean.

Two successful boats have been built to this design thus far.  We would be happy to build one for you and to your exact specifications.

Two builders in Mid-Coast Maine are authorized to build a copy of this beautiful yacht:  Brooklin Boat Yard and Rockport Marine.  They have each built one of the existing boats.
 
300 years of tradition and skill inherent in Maine boatbuilders goes into every W-Class yacht. "Wild Horses" was built at Brooklin Boat Yard. Her identical sister ship, "White Wings" was built at Rockport Marine. Employing a construction technique known as cold-molding, the two-inch-thick hull is comprised of five layers of epoxy-saturated strips of western red cedar and Douglas fir, which are laid up over the boat's internal frame and vacuum bagged to seal the bonds. The hull of the W-76 is formed from cold-molded wood to achieve a remarkable combination of strength and lightness. In addition, the W-76 is fitted with the latest equipment and hardware to optimize speed and safety. Just like her forebears, this remarkable design has been created with a devotion to esthetics as well as performance.
