A recent project Wester Naval Architecture is involved in is the design and engineering of the A347 Wolfhound from John Alden. Design 347 was a preliminary design that was never built so when she is realized more than 80 years after her lines were drawn in 1927 she will be an original Alden, not a replica, and in a way also be “John Alden’s last schooner”. Although the preliminary design indicated that she would be built in wood the final design is implemented in welded steel. By doing that, the hull is built to Lloyds A-1 classification specifications and is intended eventually to be commercially classed (with USCG) to make charter an option and thus give her a commercial viability.
