The HAMPTON ONE-DESIGN was a product of a committee selected by HYC members to pick a sloop that could be raced in the shallow waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The Hampton One-Design has a very generous sailplan that can be handled in winds to twenty by a crew of two.
History of the Fiberglass Hampton:Design and construction of the first fiberglass Hampton One Design was started in January1962. The fiberglass development was pioneered by Dave Brown, Waldo Oehman, and Ed Williams, the founding fathers of BOW Marine.
Since that time the hull design has remained essentially the same with only minor changes being made to the interior.


The rig and equipment have steadily progressed until the present status of three-stay rig, aluminum spars, and midship traveler. The fiberglass Hampton is being built to stimulate growth of the class, and not to produce a "bomb" which will drive the older boats into obsolescence. There has not been, nor will there be any attempt made to alter lines, reduce weight, or change weight distribution to make the glass boats superior. The fiberglass Hampton is a beautiful boat which equates performance to the skipper's ability and not to his pocketbook or engineering talent. The success of the fiberglass Hampton is a tribute to the builders, and to the genuine interest of the Hampton One Design Class Racing Association to retain the one-design aspect of the boat.  Construction of the fiberglass Hampton combines the traditional mahogany coming and trim of wooden boats with the colors, finishes, and rugged durability of fiberglass.


These features, when combined with the inherent beauty of the Hampton, produces a sailboat equal to the best available anywhere. The fiberglass hull is made using four major molded pieces; the deck, the innershell, the innerbottom stiffeners, and the hull. Each part is carefully weighed for quality control purposes and to insure that the completed boat approaches minimum weight.
