Lyle Hess, designed the FalmouthCutter as a pocket cruiser that could carry one or two persons across the oceans safely. The design is a take-off on a traditional English Channel pilot boat that proved sea worthy in extreme weather conditions. Mr Hess's most famous design was the 28 ft Bristol Channel Cutter. This is the smaller sister. This cutter is hull #1 built by Sam Morse in Costa Mesa, Calif. to exacting standards and heavy displacement. This is the boat that Lyle Hess created for himself. She was built as a show boat to represent all the Falmouth Cutter 22's to come. Here is what Lyle wrote about her. "I was at Catalina Island one night in a real blow. The sea was white with foam and the swells were huge. I asked myself, 'what if I had to leave tonight, what kind of boat would safely allow me to safely do it?' A good sea boat should be close winded; she should have reserve buoyancy; a fine bow, but not too fine where she is cranky when running; buttock lines to provide plenty of lift; and she should be fast. Most importantly, she should be small enough for single-handing, and yet still have a pleasant easy motion at sea. A short time later i designed the Falmouth with these qualities in mind. She represents 52 years experience and study.
Because of the boat's small size, she can actually be trailored. The plumb bow stem is fitted with a retractable wooden bow sprit. She is a full keel design with a transom hung rudder.
There is amazing storage on the vessel. Her interior is simple; yet she offers a well thought out interior. If you want a boat you can sail yourself, this is it. You will find everything truly manageable. In terms of build quality, it is top notch! The interior gives you everything you need on a boat with a 20-ft waterline that you can sail yourself anywhere in the world..
The Falmouth Cutter 22 sailboat ,is a very capable and unique sailboat. It is a true bluewater cruiser and is often used as a live aboard boat because of its spacios accomodations and standing headroom. It is capable of and was designed to cross oceans in almost any weather.
