These photos of the John Atkin-designed Ninigret recently built by Tiernan Roe show something of her lines developed for low power, and some nice details.
The Ninigret is an easily-driven 22ft design originally intended for fishing in the rough waters of Block Island.

Thanks for the photos Tiernan!
There are more photos and articles, and some background about the Ninigret written by John Atkin at the Atkin & Co website.
William Atkin and his son John drew a great many designs over two long careers; two of William’s that have appeared at intheboatshed.net recently are the Matthews Sailer and Vintage.
