    Hi all, happy new year.

    I recently bought a peterson 25ft sailboat.
    She should have been built in poland by the year 1984.
    I'm seeking for more informations about this boat type.

    Does anyone know a peterson 25 owner?
    I'm looking for design/building or any documents about this boat.
    Actually I'm living in Martinique Island where local authorities ask me for european certification of confomity.

    Thank you for your help. And sorry for my poor english

    The boat you have was designed by Doug Peterson around 1978. There was no such thing as a CoC for this type of yacht in those days.

    It was produced in large numbers by Navimor in Poland. There are large fleets of them in Russia.

    It is known in Europe as the Conrad 760, so maybe you can find some documentation under that name.

    One example named Tom Bombadil (picture attached) won the Quarter Ton Cup in the UK two years ago.

    Thank you!

    I'm not sure I recognise my ship. This one should be a racing version.
    here attached a picture of my boat.

    Yes, there were at least 2 decks available, maybe more over the years. Tom Bombadil is the racing deck, and then modified even from stock.

    However, the hulls, keels, rudders, and rigs were the same for both racing and racer/cruiser versions.

    Of course there could have been some other customized versions over the years, but I think the hulls at least would never have changed.

    We have about 8-10 of these in Lithuania. As I know they were made in 3 versions:
    Racer
    Racer/cruiser with same rig as racer but diferent deck layout.
    Cruiser - had shorter masthead riging desck as racer cruiser. I don't think that any of the documents are available nowdays.

    Here is an IOR certificate from one of the Russian Conrad 25 (Peterson 25).

    Maybe you can satisfy your local authorities with the boat type being qualified for offshore racing by ISAF/ORC!

    WOW. One of the very first Peterson Quarter Tonners. Finished 2nd in the QT NAs in '73 and '74 (behind sistership El Principio).

    Where is she in SD? What club do you sail out of?

    Have you checked out the Quarter Tonner thread on this forum? Some good info about the old QTs there. You should go post your photos there.

    I believe mine was built in 1980.

    Not sure what you mean.... :/

    Tickled Pink was a very famous Quarter Tonner, one that really helped make Peterson's name. I assumed this was the same boat.

    The hull shape and flush deck tend to indicate your boat is not from 1980. It is the shape of the original QT design by Peterson. So if it is not the original Tickled Pink it is a sistership.

    There is a builders plate on the upper starboard corner of the stern. What does it say?

    Peterson 25'3" ior 1/4 ton racer

    The name was Tickled Pink Again
    Now named... Tack Angle.
    I shuffled the letters around and came up with that. ;)

    I purchased it from a fella in Dallas Texas.
    Where was Tickled Pink sailed from?

    I'll have to look at the hull again to be 100% sure, but I have a title with 1980 as the build date.

    I believe the original TP sailed out of the Dallas area.

    The dates on titles mean nothing. When you get a new title for a boat or trailer that has been lapsed for years you can put almost anything on the paperwork.

    The builder's mark on the transom will tell the real story.

    Very interesting!

    I'll check out the hull when I go out the next time.

    Where did you find the info on TP?
    Good memory?
    Race history?

    Thanks!

    Now I'm even more confused.:confused:

    Is a 25 footer a 3/4 ton?

    btw Paul B, where in CA are you?
