Port Hadlock WA - Boat School - Contemporary - Sentinel-24

This is the first boat in the Sentinel-24 class designed by Stephens/Waring Yacht Design of Belfast, Maine (SWYD) www.stephenswaring.com .
The Sentinel-24 class is designed to be a comfortable and stylish sloop with the beautiful lines of yesterday's classics paired with modern underbody design and state-of-the art rigging.

This vessel represents Stephens Waring Yacht Design's signature approach to distinctive, fun and high performance sailing with more than a touch of historic grace.

The boat was designed for commercial production. Thus far, Stephens Waring Yacht Design has licensed only the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding to build the design in modern cold-molded wood construction within the School's Contemporary Boatbuilding program. The School calls their model the Sentinel class-24, and launched the first boat, AZULITA, during the 2013 Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend WA.

The cold-molded hull is just under 24 feet long overall, with 19 feet 4-inches on the waterline and a maximum beam of 8 feet on a draft of 4 feet 4 inches, displacing 2,850 with two crew. The sloop will carry 300 square feet of sail on a modern rig.

The open cockpit measures over 8 feet long, and was designed for a party of four with plenty of elbow room. The open cockpit layout is standard and combines a commanding tiller steering arrangement for ultimate steering feel, though an alternate deck arrangement has been drawn to satisfy those looking for a small cuddy and enough accommodation for an overnight excursion. The 24 will accommodate wheel steering with the modified cockpit as an upgrade.

Clean line management leads to the simplified control and trimming of sail, all ergonomically situated forward at the base of the mast. This results in a spare and restrained layout to ensure the boat is as easy as possible to handle. The standard rig is a backstay-less rig using a square-topped mainsail. For sailors who are not yet believers in square-topped mains, a more convention al sloop arrangement is offered by Stephens Waring Yacht Design, since the Signature-24 is a great platform for each owner's customized choices.

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is located in Port Hadlock WA, on the Olympic Peninsula, and is a private, accredited non-profit vocational school.

Our mission is to teach and preserve the fine art of wooden boatbuilding and traditional maritime crafts. We build both commissioned and speculative boats for sale while teaching students boatbuilding the skills they need to work in the marine trades.

The renowned firm of Stephens/Waring Yacht Design of Belfast, Maine (SWYD) www.stephenswaring.com selected the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding to build the first Sentinel-24 sloop.

The Sentinel-24 class is designed to be a comfortable and stylish boat. It combines the beautiful lines of yesterday's classics with a modern underbody design and state-of-the art rigging, and represents Stephens Waring Yacht Design's signature approach to distinctive, fun and high performance sailing with more than a touch of historic grace.

Since the Sentinel-24 is designed for commercial production, it fits the School's need for a modern cold-molded wood composite boat to be used to teach students that style of boatbuilding.  Our Contemporary class of 2013  is well along with building the first hull. In fact, we're looking forward to launching our completely outfitted boat on September 6th, 2013 at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend WA.

The cold-molded hull is just under 24 feet long overall, with 19 feet 4-inches on the waterline and a maximum beam of 8 feet on a draft of 4 feet 4 inches, displacing 2,850 pounds with two crew. The sloop will carry 300 square feet of sail on a modern rig.

The open cockpit measures over 8 feet long, and was designed for a party of four with plenty of elbow room. The open cockpit layout is standard and combines a commanding tiller steering arrangement for ultimate steering feel, though an alternate deck arrangement has been drawn by  Stephens Waring Yacht Design to satisfy those looking for a small cuddy and enough accommodation for an overnight excursion. The 24 will accommodate wheel steering with the modified cockpit as an upgrade.

Clean line management leads to the simplified control and trimming of sail, all ergonomically situated forward at the base of the mast. This results in a spare and restrained layout to ensure the boat is as easy as possible to handle. The standard rig is a backstay-less rig using a square-topped mainsail. For sailors who are not yet believers in square-topped mains, a more conventional sloop arrangement is offered by Stephens Waring Yacht Design, since the Signature-24 is a great platform for each owner's customized choices.

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is located in Port Hadlock WA, on the Olympic Peninsula, and is a private, accredited non-profit vocational school. We hope to build one of these boats each year, in addition to other boats, in our Contemporary Wood Composite program.

Our mission is to teach and preserve the fine art of wooden boatbuilding and traditional maritime crafts. We build both commissioned and speculative boats for sale while teaching students the skills they need to work in the marine trades.
