- The hull and deck construction is of timber
composite or foam core to reduce weight and increase panel stiffness.
The keel has all the ballast in the bulb at the bottom of a timber stub
using full length bolts to attach it to the hull. The rudder is a
single balanced blade on a stainless steel stock and is supported by
bulkheads up to bench height in the lazarette.
- The rig configurations are variable but the
owner of the first boat has opted for a ketch. We have designed a
mizzen completely separate from the main mast to eliminate the risk of a
double mast failure. Other rig options include mast head or
fractional sloop. The spars are of aluminum to help keep a cap on
the costs. All halyards are kept at the mast to keep the decks free of
- The deck layout has been kept clean with the
anchor locker forward and the windlass mounted below deck level.
Just aft of the anchor is a large sail, rope and stowage locker accessible
from on deck. There are strategically placed hatches to vent cabins
below decks The foredeck is flush back to the main mast.
There is a pilothouse area which covers the raised saloon and part of the
cockpit , with a slightly raised cabin area running aft to the
boarding platform . On the port side are the steps to the boarding
platform and a large hatch in the starboard transom in the
bulkhead to access the lazarette.
- The interior layout is designed for eight to
ten people and is based around a centre cockpit design. Forward
behind the sail locker is a double cabin with a central bunk and lockers
each side. The companionway is to starboard of the centerline with a
single bunk room to port and a toilet with separate shower to starboard.
Aft of the toilet compartment is a double private cabin with the chart
table situated above. The main saloon is raised to port in the
pilothouse area to give a panoramic view out of the windows. There
is a set of steps to starboard which take you down to the galley situated
between the aft cabin and the saloon. The aft cabin has been set up
for the owners requirements of a queen sized bed and a L shaped saloon
seat with a toilet shower to port beside the cockpit. The engine and
tankage is under the cockpit sole.
- Power comes form a single 100 - 150 hp diesel through shaft drive.
