Once an Olympic class, the Dragon is still a hot racing class in various places around the world, so anyone wanting us to build one will need to decide whether or not the boat should conform to current class rules.
The Dragon is an attractive boat with a slightly more modern appearance than many of the older designs featured on this site, and also has a distinctly European air about her.
We are custom boatbuilders who build and restore wooden yachts designed and built by Nathanael Herreshoff, L. I could not find a copy at any of the normal on-line outlets, but maybe they are available in Australia?
I'd love to see the look on Mr McMullen's face if someone turned up to one of his sail and oar shin digs with a Dragon.
From reading the story of Gerda a good sized sweep off the transom can propel a Dragon quite effectively.
If I could rig a giant light air foresail, gennaker, Code 0 or some such thing, just for cruising, I think I could get away with a yuloh or skulling oar. I assume there are class rules against inboard propulsion, which makes a quiet, stealthy, electric drive a no-go.


BB, I was actually thinking a nice little Torquedo electric OB with a discreet folding bracket for auxiliary power.
PhD student Leonardo Bortolami at the University of Ferrara is combining academic study with hands-on boat restoration for his thesis about best practice in the restoration of historic vessels.
During the Olympic years hundreds of unmeasured Dragons were built and raced in East Germany, Poland, and the Soviet Union. I think the deal is CB (or it's partners) owns and holds the negatives and prints can be purchased for a pretty penny. Duncan, if I had to guess I'd say those were controls for the jib cars and the barber haul. To get WoodenBoat delivered to your door or computer, mobile device of choice, etc, click WB Subscriptions.
There are quite a few entries on the Dragon in the Argentinean writer Bader's book on yachting. Having said that, it used to be the norm not to have anything other than a sweep in ye olde days: Now time is money. I had a look at the rules and no self bailers can be fitted to the cockpit, but I would assume that there has to be at least one through-hull for the pumps, possibly under the counter? The boats in question are a pair of International Dragons: Aretusa, built in 1956, and Acanto, built in 1966. I don't know if that has anything to do with the current Russian love for the Dragon class, but at most of the events in the Med the Russians will fill the fleet.
And it really does give one a sense of the history of this great class, and a feeling of belonging to something really cool.


The original version was intended to be of some use as a cruising boat and has a longer cabin trunk and a couple of small berths. As a racing boat she has a classic look and handling characteristics that make her much more appealing, to our way of thinking, than most of today’s racing classes. But having said that, if I did any extensive cruising in a Dragon the propellor driving beasty would be stowed below. The restoration work, in partnership with staff at the Cantiere Alto Adriatico yard in Monfalcone, has started with the removal of decks and hardware on both yachts and the GRP deckhouse sheathing on Acanto. These were typically built with the racing gear of the day, but were much simpler than today’s boats. It is very easy to paddle a Dragon with two people pulling six-foot paddles you can make up some ground. Patrick Gifford didn't say anything otherwise, but I'll join up the Oz DA and submit Looe for any scrutiny once I start doing stuff beyond fixing the structural integrity of the hull and deck. Nevins Inc., Walsted Baadevaert Shipyard, and some of the premier Maine boatyards and Maine boatbuilders of the last century like Rice Brothers and Hodgdon Yachts.
When you look at these guys droop hiking in the photos from Europe you know why they had to get rid of the winches, but we don't do that (except for me, and I can hook my foot under the traveler bar).
