Additional Information

The BB10 is constructed of fiberglass sandwich with balsam core in the deck, cabin, and hull. The original teak deck was removed when the boat was upgraded in 2011-13. The spade rudder and low draft keel combined with the long and narrow lines of the BB 10 give it the appearance of a much larger boat. But with a displacement of 4,956 pounds it is still trailerable. The BB10 has a high aspect rig, designed to carry a main, spinnaker, jib, genoa, or gennaker. Reefing can be done quickly and by one person. The long cockpit and comfortably fit a crew of four plus the helms-person.

The BB10 is for the sailing purist. This boat was designed with a disregard for ratings and attention to speed. Under the PHRF, for example, the BB10 is rated very high at 120. This reflects the yacht’s spectacular performance potential. Speeds of over 15 knots downwind have been recorded frequently. It is for those who enjoy most the thrill of moving through the water efficiently, using only the wind. Acceleration is incredible and it sails with astonishing speed, a minimum of fuss and a great sense of security. The BB10 is a head turner and other vessels alter course to come near and ask questions.

This is a two-owner boat, one of about 150 built. An architect in San Francisco and his sailing partner purchased her new in 1982. The current owner purchased the boat in 2011 and undertook over $30,000 repairs and upgrades. She was re-launched in 2013 and has been used for day sailing with family and friends around Santa Cruz. The current owner has serviced the boat regularly and maintained at a high level, including repair of blisters below the water line, stripping the bottom paint and applying two layers of epoxy barrier plus two coats of Trinidad 3, replacing the prop shaft and cutlass bearing, and other maintenance in 2019.
