Cyrus Hamlin - Naval Architect

Mr. Hamlin was born in 1918 and has been designing boats for about half a century. These range from small cruising sailboats and powerboats to such famous vessels as the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.

Among his many accomplishments and innovations in design he is perhaps most famous for his development and promotion of glued strip construction and for his development with E. Farnham Butler of the Controversy series of light displacement reverse sheer cruising sailboats in strip construction.

Since the early 1970's Mr. Hamlin has worked for the United Nations, the InterAmerican Development Bank, the World Bank, and the fisheries departments of various countries on fishing vessel development. He has done work on every continent except Anarctica.
