The South Coast Seacraft Owners' Association is dedicated to the dissemination and sharing of information about South Coast sailboats and the experiences of South Coast owners, as well as providing a forum for communication between South Coast sailors and other interested persons.
The South Coast Seacraft Company of Shreveport, Louisiana began production of two classic Carl Alberg designs in 1965, the SC 23 and the SC 21.
Hollis Metcalf was the founder and chief designer. Hoping to carve a niche in the emerging trailerable cruising boat market, Metcalf and his chief engineer, James Monroe, redesigned the SC 21 to include larger accommodations and a swing keel. The SC 22 was by far the most successful of the South Coast line of boats.
Hollis' son, Warren, was groomed to take over the company, but he died tragically in a diving accident before he had finished designing the SC 25. Hollis sold the company in 1975 to three individuals from Chicago. The company's finances declined quickly and the plant closed in June of 1981. Over 4,000 South Coast sailboats were produced, over 3,000 of which were the versatile SC 22.

South Coast 22


The SC 22 was the most numerous of the South Coast boats with over 3,000 produced.
Desiring to capitalize on the emerging trailerable cruising sailboat market, South Coast redesigned the Alberg SC 21, lengthening the boat, installing a bigger doghouse, and replacing the fin keel with a swing keel.
The result was a fast, versatile and seaworthy trailerable pocket cruiser.

Eclipse 6.7


Eclipse 6.7 is a fancy metric way of saying 22 feet. Much of the hardware is the same as the SC 22 including the keel, rudder and hull. Differences in the topsides allowed the mast to be about two feet forward of the mast placement of the SC 22. Due to the mast placement, the Eclipse carries a 110% working jib with the SC 22 flying a 100% jib. At this time, sailing comparable equipped vessels side by has not been possible. SC 22 has boom end sheeting, which allows for rolling the mainsail on the boom to reef the mainsail. The Eclipse has mid boom sheeting requiring reef points in the sail. Cabin layout between the two boats is different.
Chronic complaints about the SC 22 cockpit drain burping water were addressed with the Eclipse. Rather than draining into the keel trunk, the cockpit drain of the Eclipse drains out the transom.
