History
Bristol Yachts went through many changes over the years. Bristol Yachts was founded by Clint Pearson, one of the first production fiberglass boat builders. Recent Bristol models filled the semi-custom builder niche, but earlier Bristols were aimed at the mass market and were finished accordingly. Bristol Yachts was formed by Clint Pearson after Clint and Everett Pearson sold Pearson to Grumman in the 1960s. Clint Pearson then formed Bristol Yachts in 1966. Early models were the Alberg designed 27, the Alden designed 35, and the Hood designed 32 and 39(40). These were all full keel or keel-centerboard designs. Herreshoff designed many models as well but with the exception of the 29/30, they were all fin and skeg or fin keel designs with more of the racing slant. Bristol Yachts built a wide range of models from the 19 Corinthian to the 65.5 before the company folded in 1997. Most of the Bristol Yachts came from the design team of Ted Hood who among other fine designs was an Americas Cup Designer. Some of the more recent designs were done by Dieter Empacher who at one time was employed by Hood design group. One of his designs is the Bristol 35.5. Most of the Bristols are built more heavily than most current production sailboats. They can be raced using the PHRF system, however most were designed for cruising and comfort. Hood designs generally are centerboard boats which offer performance and seaworthiness without the constricting restrains of deep draft.
