Almost every aspect of PALMA, a plank-on frame, double-ended daysailer, is custom designed and built. She combines exquisite materials and details with a sleek, elegant appearance. Built of Douglas fir, Alaskan yellow cedar and mahogany, she has berths for two, tufted leather seats, custom hardware and a small diesel engine for propulsion.
PALMA was designed by the late David Ryder-Turner in the spirit of William Fife. The beautiful lines of the design won accolades from Classic Boat Magazine, who praised Ryder-Turner’s careful adaptation of a Fife classic. Palma can be seen in the waters of Maine.
