A very informative article is posted on the Canadian Yachting Magazine's website about this formidable designer, in the REVIEWS section "T", under the heading of: 'TED BREWER's Canadian Home Brews'

Originally built by Command Yachts in London, Ont. Canada, to very high quality standards it is considered a fine cruising boat. Unfortunately they had a checkered financial history, quality costs money and not enough people were willing to pay for that in the early seventies. Command Yachts did not survive. Some were also made by: North American Fiberglass Mouldings of London Ont. I do not know the connection between these two London Onario firms. The boat was then available in kit form from Bruce Peninsula Yachts out of Port Elgin Ontario.Both the Douglas31 and Hullmaster are essentially the same boat except for the reversed transom, shortening the boat by one foot.

The 1998 Spring Issue of  Canadian Yachting Magazine featured a very good article of the Douglas 31/32 and Hullmaster series.


Our boat was named "Foreplay" and we have chosen NOT to rename her,
she has participated in the  Marblehead Halifax Ocean Race Bi-Annual she used to bear the name "Felicity" previously.

There were only approx. 100 of these (Ted Brewer designed) excellent quality Blue Water Cruising vessels built, and we would appreciate your feedback on any of their whereabouts.

The Bowline is absolutely the best way to put a fixed loop in the end of a rope.  Easy to untie; it never slips or jams and has a high breaking strength.
