Brooklin Boat Yard of Brooklin, Maine, was selected by the Spanish yacht design firm Botin Partners to build a 72-foot cruising design sloop.

The boat will be built of wood, carbon fiber, foam and epoxy composite construction.

Some examples of Brooklin Boat Yard-built boats similar in size, construction and complexity to the new Botin Partners design are the 76-foot Spirit of Tradition sloop, Goshawk, a 69-foot Fast Sloop, Isobel, built in 2011, and most recently, a 74-foot German Frers-designed daysailer, Foggy, launched in June.

The Botin 22 will be similar in hull shape and sail plan to today’s modern racing boats with an extended bowsprit, plumb bow, wide beam running well aft, T-bulb (lifting) keel and twin rudders.

Construction has started and launching is anticipated for late fall next year.

Botin Partners is known for its work with box-rule racers such as TP52s, Class 40s, Volvo 70s, HPR/IRC 44s and IRC 52s. The company has had custom one-off sailboats such as the Grand Soleil 37, 40, 43, 46 and 50 and the Murtic 52.
