History

The Concordia yawl was designed in 1938 by naval architect C. Raymond Hunt with input from Llewellyn and Waldo Howland, Clinton Crane, Fenwick Williams and Frank Paine.

Earlier that year Llewellyn Howland's family's Colin Archer designed Norwegian pilot cutter, Escape, was destroyed by the Great Hurricane of 1938. Llewellyn commissioned the Concordia Company, which he had founded in 1926 and at the time run by his son Waldo, to design and build a replacement. Llewellyn wanted a sailboat that could be used for both cruising and racing and withstand the heavy wind and choppy waters of Buzzards Bay.

What was created was Concordia design number fourteen, a 39'10" yawl that would become one of the most successful yawls in history. There were 103 Concordias produced between 1938 and 1966, making the Concordia yawl class the largest class of large one-design wooden sailboats.  The first four Concordias were produced in Massachusetts. Concordia commissioned the Abeking and Rasmussen shipyard in Lemwerder, Germany to build the last 99 (26 of them as a 41' Model).  102 of the 103 Concordias are still in existence today.

Over the years the Concordia yawl has won numerous races including the prestigious Newport Bermuda Race (1954 & 1978), the Annapolis Race (1955), Cowes Week (1955) and the Marblehead-to-Halifax Race (1955 & 1997).

  • 1954 Newport Bermuda Race - Malay, Concordia #2, Dan Strohmeier.
  • 1955 Annapolis Race - Actaea, Concordia #17, Henry Sears.
  • 1955 Cowes Week - Harrier, Concordia #30, Ray Hunt.
  • 1955 Marblehead-to-Halifax Race - Malay, Concordia #2, Dan Strohmeier.
  • 1978 Newport Bermuda Race - Babe, Concordia #26, Arnold Gay.
  • 1997 Marblehead-to-Halifax Race - Crocodile, Concordia #67, Robert Crocker.

The Concordia yawls Arapaho, hull #85 and Irian, hull #70 (both 41' models), appeared in the movie Message in a Bottle.

Accommodations

From the long cockpit you enter the companionway and descend the steps to the main salon.  The galley is at the base of the steps with stove to the starboard and sink and cooler to the port.

Forward there are settees on both port and starboard with book shelves and lockers behind.

The backs of the settees raise up to make a port and starboard suspended bed on each side.

Forward from here is a head to port and locker opposite.

Moving to the bow there is a v-berth that can double as sail and line storage.

Exterior

The lines of this boat exude grace and speed.  From the tip of her bow sprit to the bronze stern rail she demands a second or third look.  Her wooden mast and sprit and all of the bronze fittings come from an era of meticulous attention to detail and thought.
