Squilo is a well preserved and well loved example of the Chance 32/28 built by Paceship. This is a great boat to go to the keys, Bahamas, or just day sail around the bay!
Paceship began as Industrial Shipping Company Limited of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, a builder of small plywood speedboats. When the plant was rebuilt after a fire in 1956, it became one of the earliest manufacturer of small fiberglass runabouts and sailboats.
Britt Chance is designer of the last Paceship 32 the "Chance 32/28" as well as the Chance 29/25
Chance is a prodigious naval architect and designer of many sailboats including several America's Cup boats.
Chance played a significant role along with Bruce Nelson, Dave Pedrick and SAIC scientists (led by Nils Salvesen and Carl Scragg) in developing the design of "Stars and Strips" for Dennis Connors's 1987 bid for the return of the America Cup to the USA. Chance's imaginative talents were more recently realized in the 65-foot futuristic Procyon built by Harken Inc., in Pewaukee, Wis. Chance has been active in racing sail design implementing many new foil designs which have pushed the state-ofthe-art and rules of some of the worlds most prestigious races.
Chance is also the designer of many smaller sailboats including the Tartan Pride 270 in 1985.
