It's said the first twin-keel sailboat was Lord Riverdale's 25-foot Bluebird of Thorne, built in 1924. She was plenty criticized but in 1939 Riverdale built a bigger Bluebird (50 feet) with an important refinement in that her keels were not parallel to the centerline, but canted outward instead. This was significant. It meant that the twin keels became more effective as the angle of heel increased just the opposite of the traditional single keel, which becomes progressively less effective.

Following this early breakthrough, twin keels have evolved to the point that proponents presently claim a number of performance advantages over the modern fin keel.

This Pilothouse Cutter with Dual Helm boats all the features needed for extended and bluewater cruising.  She is built to be safe, fast and comfortable for cruising the Great Lakes or any ocean you choose to take her.  Her hull was layed in the early 1990's,and was a work in progress until her completion in 2004.   She is in great shape above and below, and well outfitted with twin ballast keels, a proper crow's nest, and modern rigging.
