Wooden Ships Comments
Designed and built by the previous owner, launched in 2010, as a fast high performance day sailer with enough accommodation for weekend camping.
Performance was key to her design brief and she has proved to be a fast and exciting boat to sail, but also easily handled by a small crew. The extremely shallow draft when the centreboards are retracted means she can happily be used for creek crawling adventures and will take the ground at low water.
The cockpit is her key feature with enough space for 7 or 8 adults when sailing making her a sociable boat, but with a small coachroof over the forward part of the hull she has a 2 comfortable berths and dry stowage space for short weekend trips away.
The rig is a gunter type with carbon fibre spars and she features twin lifting centreboards giving ultimate windward performance.
A very unique and interesting boat, easily towed behind a family car and she comes as a complete package on a road trailer ready to be used this season.
