Dragon 1929

Dragon 1929

The first Dragon was built in 1929 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The sailing qualities of the Dragon are so good that the boat is practically used for cruising and regatta all over the world, and especially in Europe, where it has become extremely popular. In the course of time, the dragon has gradually been changed into a regatta boat, and it is no longer built in accordance with the original specifications.
Both the cabin and the canvas have been changed, so today it is actually only the hull, which is original. In 1948 the Dragon was made an olympic class of boats, and all measures were stipulated by the International Yachting Union. Since 1929 this type of boat has participated in numerous Scandinavian and International regattas and it is still one of the most popular boats.

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.

All 103 Concordias are still in existents today.
