Frans Maas 'Breeon' class

Brief details

Builder

Fa Gebr Maas, Breskens, Holland

Breeons are extremely pretty traditional yachts, built of top quality materials to very high standards by Frans Maas in Holland. Although when designed they were competitive racers, they now make a lovely moderate to heavy displacement fast cruiser, with the advantage of comparatively shallow draught.

Frans Maas 'Breeon'

The 'Breeon' class was a racing yacht design from early 1960s, and examples of the class proved very successful racers. The example illustrated here started life as an ocean racer, and was mentioned in an early edition of Adlard Coles' "Heavy Weather Sailing", having survived unscathed a 1964 storm in which another yacht and one life was lost. She has since cruised extensively.


The example shown was a wooden hull on steel frames, although quite a few were also built entirely in steel.

The hull is carvel-planked iroko on steel frames with laminated iroko stem and sternpost. The carvel hull planks are probably either glued or edge-fastened (no-one knows because as as far as is known it has never been necessary to replace a plank on this yacht). She has a teak deck on a marine ply base, with mahogany cabin trunking and interior joinery. She has an alloy mast and boom with a twin-forestay rig

This yacht illustrated was fitted with her original Sabb 2-cylinder diesel, a genuine low-revving heavy flywheel marine diesel, and as such an extremely long-lived piece of machinery. It drives a two-bladed variable pitch feathering and reversing prop via a conventional sternshaft.
