Adirondack II and her sister ship and predecessor Adirondack were designed and built for charter work.  Designer John Scarano gave Adirondack II an aesthetically pleasing traditional look both above and below deck.  Below the waterline she is a little less traditional, with a cut away keel and separate rudder aft, which makes her fast and maneuverable.  Adirondack II also has a more focused daysail layout than Adirondack I and has recessed seating for more passengers.
