ABOUT DOUG PETERSON: the designer
Doug Peterson is a sailboat designer whose name is synonymous with innovation in the world of racing and cruising yachts. Since the mid-1970s, Peterson's yachts such as Scarlet O'Hara, Eclips, Cheetah, and the legendary Williwas have cut a winning swath through the world of offshore racing.
In 1976 Peterson sat down and designed the Peterson 34, a racer-cruiser. Peterson said the 34 was built "to deliver about eight people quickly and safely from point A to point B (such as Newport to Bermuda)." Modesty aside, the Peterson 34 has an excellent reputation for windward sailing performance in both light and heavy air. Her fine bow slices through the waves so she does not pound. And thanks to the advanced construction techniques of the era the solid hulls of the Peterson 34s are extremely strong and built to take it in any sea.
