1960 Ted Hood Tor 36


Spirol was designed by the late and legendary Ted Hood. In 1960 Hood designed a forty footer named Robin, the Tor 40, which was similar to a previous vessel which had been very successful on the racing circuit.  Spirol is a 36 foot version of this famous design rigged as a yawl and with centerboard. Though used primarily as a cruising sailboat Spirol has been very successful on the racing circuit.  Her sister ship, Rambler, has made four transatlantic crossings – attesting to the seaworthiness of the design and construction of these vessels.  Spirol has been well-cared for by her previous owner, and professionally stored every winter.  She had a refit in 2005 at which time she received:

New sails, new electrical system, roller furler, furuno radar/gps.  Her 40 hsp westebeke was rebuilt in 2014.
