The International 110
Designed in 1939 by famed naval architect Ray Hunt, the International 110 has evolved into a hot one-design racing class with numerous fleets in New England, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, West Coast, Hawaii, and the Philippines. The 110 is a 24 foot long, 4 foot wide, hard chined, double ended, flat bottomed, keel boat, with crew trapeze, jib roller furler and bow-launched spinnaker. Newer boats are fiberglass construction, but the older plywood boats remain competitive. The 110 is virtually unsinkable and new models are self-rescuing. The boat is extremely seaworthy and responsive in all conditions. It is an ideal one-design racer for sailors of all ages and skill levels. More information is available on the International 110 Class site.
A new International 110 is virtually indestructible and will be a member of your family for many decades. In other words, it is not a "tupperware" boat that pops out of the mold and becomes soggy after a few seasons. Information on a new 110 can be obtained from Westease Yachts, 100 Aniline Road, Holland, MI 49424 (616-394-0076).
