WALTER GREENE was built by Damian McLaughlin in 2002 as a follow up to Damian's success with the Sidney Herreshoff designed ARION. WALTER GREENE was built with laminated wood and was a refined version of ARION. ARION was originally built by the Anchorage Boat Co. and was the first cruising sailing yacht built in fiberglass.
The owner was sold on the virtues of a long and slender hull after sailing onboard ARION with Damian that summer but was told she was not for sail. The solution was to build a similar yacht in wood with a few adjustments.
For more information on both boats and Damian McLaughlin, you can read the feature article in issue #200 (Jan/Feb 2008) in WoodenBoat magazine.
