Jerry Cartwright


A west coast (USA) designer of cruising yachts. After leaving the Navy in the early 1970's, Cartwright became a dedicated solo long distance sailer, entering a number of single handed races as well as being credited with originating the Bermuda 1-2 ocean race. Most of his designs, such as the CARTWRIGHT 42, catered to the long-distance, shorthanded sailor. Some were built of fiberglass, but none were produced in great numbers and they remain somewhat of a rarity in the used sailboat market.
