Wooden Ships Comments on this Iain Oughtred Whilly Tern
Iain Oughtred Whilly Tern, built around 2008. This design from Oughtred was inspired by the Shetland working boats and is designed to be a safe and stable load carrier, easy to row and a joy to sail. She has more beam than some of his Dory type designs making her more stable.
The epoxy plywood construction makes for a very light boat so she is easy to launch and recover with one person. She can easily be sailed and handled by one but has space for 3 adults.
Complete with trailer, cover, oars and rig, she is a nice package ready to sail this summer.
