About Jim Taylor Yacht Designs


Jim Taylor has been sailing since childhood. Born in 1949, he was soon “messing about in boats” on the Delaware River, and on a Rhode Island salt pond. He earned a B.A. from Haverford College, (Haverford, PA), and a graduate ‘degree’ from the ‘Ted Hood School of Yachting Technology,’ where he worked for five years on a variety of ocean racing, America’s Cup 12-meter, and production cruising designs. He is married to Anne, has a college age son, and has been a professional yacht designer for over 30 years.
