Allegro is a classic Cheoy
Lee "Frisco Flyer" built in 1957. Unlike most new-model sailboats
which tend to be ill-mannered in gusty conditions, this boat has been designed for
the SF Bay. She is an
excellent sailor, perfectly balanced, and will find her "groove" on any point of sail. No
matter what the conditions, the pressure on the tiller will hardly increase
and she can be trimmed so that any size gust can be easily handled.
Allegro is a true classic boat which combines the best traditional boat
design with fun and safety on the water.
Frisco Flyers have a great pedigree.
Richard Reed imported them into San Francisco from Cheoy
Lee Shipyard (HK) in the late fifties. These solid teak 25 footers captured
both the lines and spirit of Tord Sunden’s Folkboat. The first
Frisco Flyer was built in 1957 and made two single-handed Atlantic
crossings that year, after which the company went into production on the
Allegro is hull #2 and constructed of all teak with the original Folkboat-like fractional rig with double spreaders and
returning shrouds. She has been meticulously maintained by the owner
(this is not a project boat). The
four-stroke Honda 2hp outboard motor works great for docking.
