ProductionEdit

The design was built by Precision Boat Works in Palmetto, Florida, United States, starting in 1990, with 350 boats completed, but it is now out of production.[1][4]

DesignEdit

The 11 Meter is a racing keelboat, built predominantly of cored fiberglass. It has a fractional sloop rig, a raked stem, a sharply reverse transom, an internally mounted spade-type rudder controlled by a tiller and a fixed fin keel with a weighted lead bulb. It displaces 3,527 lb (1,600 kg) and carries 1,598 lb (725 kg) of ballast.[1]

The boat has a draft of 5.90 ft (1.80 m) with the standard keel.[1]

The design has minimal cabin space, intended for storage space.[1]

For sailing downwind the design may be equipped with a symmetrical masthead spinnaker.[1]

Operational historyEdit

The boat is supported by a class club that organizes racing events, the International 11:Metre One Design Class Association.[5]
