Author John Vigor describes the Allied Seawind 2 affectionately in his book Twenty small boats you can sail anywhere We have had a lovely time with Ambitious, sailing all over the Gulf, Keys and Cuba. With an air draft of only 45 and draft of 4.5 she can gunk hole, duck into waterways with tiny bridges or cross any ocean you want. One of only 11 Cutter rigged Allied Seawind 2 built,, she has a great sailplan for us. Continuously updated-NO, restored, she has amenities and features missing from most larger boats. 2019 Bristol survey available with recent additions BEYOND that including: New refrigerator with smart controller and passive water cooled condenser, new MAX-PROP EZ, ablative bottom paint, new cabin sole flooring and refinished cockpit table and cockpit sole grate. Yup, thats all just in the last 12 months.
Equipment: **NOTE** Due to site restrictions, I can only give you a partial list of what Ambitious has to her credit. Full word or PDF document with additional photos available.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
Originally designed for Kaiser Gale Force Yachts which sold the molds to Allied Boat Co. After changing the cabin top and port arrangement, the first boat appeared in 1962.
Early builders under contract were Lunn Laminates of Port Washington, NY and F.L. Tripp & Sons, Westport, MA.
(Allied eventually had it’s own large plant in the Catskills, NY.)
The SEAWIND was the first, as well as one of the last, boats built by Allied Boat Company. In 1978 it was brought back into production and actually built simultaneously with the newer SEAWIND II.
Also offered with a sloop rig. (with mast stepped farther aft.)
