For much of the last 40 years, Chuck Paine was among the world's most prolific and sought-after yacht designers. Paine-designed yachts have sailed the world and more than a few have been termed masterpieces. Yacht design isn't just a business for Chuck Paine; it's a calling. So after a period of semi-retirement, Chuck has turned his talents to a new era in yacht design: designing and building classic sailboats, affordable in view of their gemstone quality; but like all of his oeuvre to date, far from cheap. This site provides access to Chuck's vast archive of yacht designs and highlights a growing portfolio of smaller designs he is focusing on these days. Enjoy.
