Teazer is one of four small sailboat designs created for PDF Tad's article “Sailing Cruiser Design -Part 1” published in Wooden Boat #175. Part 2, PDF “Sailing Cruiser Design -Part 2”, was published in Wooden Boat #176.
When looking at the drawing, the first clue to [Teazer's] intended use is the huge cockpit with a short trunk cabin forward. I have taken her strongest elements from traditional cruising designs: classic sheer, the low, rounded house, elliptical transom, and ketch rig. Modern touches are the short overhangs, fin keel and spade rudder, and tight bilge radius with flattish sections amidships. The wild card in this mix is the slight reversal in the stem profile. I think the slight clipper bow balances the short stern nicely and gives Teazer a distinctive look. She is no longer trying to look like a Herreshoff but has developed her own character.
