Notes

This is the first version of a design that became the HUGHES 48/NORTHSTAR 48. (S&S #1956)
It was introduced at the NY Boat Show in 1969. Named Queen of the show it was one of the largest sailboats ever displayed there.
It is thought that less than 5 were built at the Seafarer plant on Long Island (USA).
Today a large mosaic of the boat exists at an office complex located at the site (Long Island, NY) where the Seafarer plant once stood.
