Overview

RAINMAKER is a particularly handsome keel centerboard yawl which was designed by William Tripp and well built by the Jacobson yard in New York.  Like her designer’s well known Bermuda 40 design, RAINMAKER has similarities to Carlton Mitchell’s famous “Finistere” model, yet uses the stock Bermuda 40 rig.  The best materials went into construction, and her original owner reports that she would easily out-sail a Bermuda 40.  We understand that RAINMAKER has been well cared for and upgraded under current ownership, and that she can be well recommended.

RAINMAKER is a particularly handsome keel centerboard yawl which was designed by William Tripp and well built by the Jacobson yard in New York.  Like her designer’s well known Bermuda 40 design, RAINMAKER has similarities to Carlton Mitchell’s famous “Finistere” model, yet uses the stock Bermuda 40 rig.  The best materials went into construction, and her original owner reports that she would easily out-sail a Bermuda 40.  We understand that RAINMAKER has been well cared for and upgraded under current ownership, and that she can be well recommended.
