Concordia Yawl number 5!
Concordia Company commissioned 103 Concordia yawls between 1938 and 1966. The German shipyard, Abeking and Rasmussen, constructed all but four of the yawls. Oyster Bay yachtsman Drayton Cochran commissioned the first Abeking and Rasmussen-built Concordia yawl, beginning the unique relationship that would develop between the two companies.
At the time they were building Concordias, Abeking and Rasmussen were primarily involved in building commercial vessels. The company was able to produce the yawl at a very reasonable price, leaving many of the final details to the Concordia yard to complete. The yawls were built out of a relationship of trust and good will - Abeking and Rasmussen actually shipped complete boats to Concordia before receiving final payment.
By the 1960's, economic forces rendered it impossible to continue producing the yawls in Germany. Irene, hull #103, was the last Concordia to be shipped from Lemwerder in 1966. A tribute to the relationship between Concordia and Abeking Rasmussen sits in Concordia's office today. A scale model of a Concordia yawl, complete in every detail, was built by A&R's model builder, Herr Potzka. It arrived unheralded in the forecastle of the 75th boat built by Abeking and Rasmussen, Westray.
Waldo sold the company to Bill Pinney in 1969. Bill owned the company until 1981, helping to solidify the good reputation the company had built. During this time, Concordia continued to build the Beetle Cat sailboat, and began developing its facilities to accommodate the ever-increasing need for boatyard services on quality fiberglass yachts.
