Philip L. Rhodes (1895 -1974) was one of the most distinguished yacht designers of the past century. A brilliant designer whose boats were beautiful, fast, seaworthy, and comfortable, Phil Rhodes was active for 50 years -- from 1920 to 1970. And he was prolific; a listing of his yacht designs totals 386, most of which are sailboats. Because he designed many boats for  ocean racing, especially to Bermuda, his boats had to be fast, but they also had to be strong, seaworthy, and comfortable to survive and keep racing through the gales that frequent the Gulf Stream and other race courses. All of Phil's designs follow a set of underlying design principles. The boats are beautifully shaped and proportioned. The Rhodes sheerline is distinctive, rising to a fairly high bow, dropping aft of amidships, and rising modestly to the stern. Medium overhangs give the bow and the stern plenty of buoyancy and increase the waterline under sail. The construction was strong.

A  truly beautiful steel classic. "Sonic" has brand new Burmese teak decks.  She's a 60' Burmudan Ocean Racing Yawl.  The historically defined Burger Boat Company built her in 1951.  Originally designed as a Sonar Bouy testing vessel, "Sonic" was classed as a research vessel.  The cockpit, exterior trim, and interior is elegant dark mahogany.  She has recently undergone a 2 year extensive, comprehensive re-fit.  She has circumnavigated the world 6 times.  She's very strong (her frames are 15" on center) and is capable of navigating any waters.  A great yacht  for cruising, chartering, and or the classic regattas...
