Weekender

The Stevenson Projects Weekender design is forty years old this year! Inspired by the classic lines of Friendship sloops, but translated to plywood, the Weekender has the looks of a classic era and the light-strong straight-forward simplicity of more modern materials. The Weekender is a fairly simple boat to build, as many of our first-time builders can attest to.

Over the decades, hundreds of builders have come to love the boat as much as we do. It’s certainly a perennial favorite, both for us and our customers. 16′ on deck, just over 19′ overall, weighing in around 650-700lbs, with 120 sq. ft of sail.
