Archimedes


This is a modern gaff-rigged double ended cutter. Archimedes was designed by The Benford Design Group in Maryland and built by Johnson Yachts in New Zealand. The steel hull is made of computer cut plates. She is designed to survive a 360 degree roll in the southern ocean. The roller furling headsails contrast with the gaff main. Wooden spars are mixed with steel construction. The flush decks make her look roomy below and safe on deck. She is 45 feet (presumably on deck), but there are not a lot of other technical details given.
