Brewer - designer of the Pan Oceanic Yachts
Naval Architect Ted Brewer has designed over 260 boats. Born
in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Ted made his professional career
in the US. Brewer now lives in Agassiz, British Columbia,
He has worked on designs ranging from the America's Cup successful
defender Weatherly to motor yachts. Ted's production
designs include the Whitby 42, Cabot 36, Morgan 38 - and the
Pan Oceanic sailboats
- 38, 43, and 46.
of Brewer's signature design features is the "Brewer Bite"
- Brewer's clever way of adding some of the windward sailing
advantage of a fin keel boat to a cruising boat's full keel.
At the same time, the "Brewer Bite" offers protection
for the prop -- an important feature for a cruising boat --
just as you would see in a full keel design. The "Brewer
Bite" was used in all of the Pan Oceanic Designs. You can
see it clearly in this Pan Oceanic 46 hull drawing.
Pan Oceanic yachts were not produced in large numbers, the fact
that Ted Brewer designed them brings instant respect.
