W-Class Yacht Company is expanding its family of yachts to include 100’, 123’ and 135’ models. The new racer/cruiser yachts will retain the ‘Spirit of Tradition’ and performance attributes of the existing W-Class Yacht Company’s W-37’, W-46’ and W-76’ models. The W-Class yachts will be built at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, with support from the shipwrights at Rockport Marine of Rockport, Maine, and Brooklin Boat Yard of Brooklin, Maine.

 “I’m eager to move W-Class Yacht Company into its next phase with three designs over 100 feet,” says Donald Tofias, president of W-Class Yacht Company. “In 1997 when I asked Taylor Allen of Rockport Marine and Steve White of Brooklin Boat Yard each to build a W-76, they worked together closely for the benefit of the yachts, a tradition that has continued. Now there’s also Front Street Shipyard, a facility that is large enough and capable enough to accommodate the largest yacht in the W-Class line.”

The initial profile drawings reveal a sleek, cold-molded hull with elegant overhangs and a low deckhouse. The W-123 and her sister ships are all based on the late Joel White’s W-76 design, which was inspired by the NYYC-50 (a Nathaniel Herreshoff-designed, gaff-rigged sloop that’s 50’ on the water and 75’ long). All three new W-Class yachts will be imbued with classic styling, minimal interiors and contemporary performance enhancements.

“The W-123 was designed with racing in mind,” says designer Bruce Johnson, former chief designer of Sparkman & Stephens. “The design brief calls for a true high-performance racing yacht that exemplifies classic styling but incorporates a modern underbody, a high aspect ratio, hydraulically lifting bulb T keel, and the latest-generation carbon rig, rigging and sails.”
