 The first Dragon was built in 1929 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The sailing qualities of the Dragon are so good that the boat is practically used for cruising and regatta all over the world, and especially in Europe, where it has become extremely popular. In the course of time, the dragon has gradually been changed into a regatta boat, and it is no longer built in accordance with the original specifications.
Both the cabin and the canvas have been changed, so today it is actually only the hull, which is original. In 1948 the Dragon was made an olympic class of boats, and all measures were stipulated by the International Yachting Union. Since 1929 this type of boat has participated in numerous Scandinavian and International regattas and it is still one of the most popular boats.

Launched in 1936. Many consider Ticonderoga the crowning design achievement of L. Francis Herreshoff. Francis Herreshoff designed the 72-foot ketch Ticonderoga to be a fast day boat for Harry Noyes and his family.

But he designed her with the flowing lines below the water and breathtaking clipper-yacht aesthetics above. Big Ti, as she was known, startled very one with her speed on all points of sail. Racing her soon took center stage. Many yachting connaisseurs consider her the most beautiful ocean racer ever built.

Since she was launched in 1936 as Tioga II, she was recorded more ocean-racing victories, especially first-overall honors, than any yacht in history. She has been refitted as a luxurious cruising boat, but her current owner frequently races. Along with Endeavour and Shamrock V, Ticonderoga is the most famous racing yacht still sailing today.
