Custom built 16ft Junk rigged trailer sailer, built for an adventure.
The design is a Goshawk 16' by Selway Fisher. Built around 2001 from marine ply and Dynel.
Comes complete with 5hp 4 stroke Tohatsu outboard. (low hours) Housed in a purpose built outboard well. Fully battened awning, porta-loo, anchor gear, camping matteress, watertank, all on a registered Gal trailer.
Sampan has been set up for single handed sailing. With its junk rigged mainsail, self draining cockpit, drawing only 14" with the centreboard up, and a counter balanced mast on a tabernacle, she is a little boat to go anywhere...
Here is what Selway Fisher had to say regarding the design.
The Goshawk was designed for an American company for use in their boat hire business. The design brief called for a boat which was tough and which, for only a 16' length, would have as comfortable a cabin space as possible. To go with this, she had to be very stable and easily handled by both novice and experienced sailor alike and hence the rig had to be self tending. Basing the new craft on our Skylark 16 Mark 2 and using some of the ideas developed for our Lynx 16 design, we remodelled the Skylark hull using an additional chine and a little more beam. The cabin goes right out to the hull side so that sitting space inside the cabin is comfortable and she has a large cockpit over which a boom tent may be used. Construction uses the stitch/epoxy method with pre-shaped ply bulkheads and girders. LOD 15'10" (4.8m); Beam 7'9" (2.35m); Draft 1'2"/3' (. 38/. 92m); Sail Area 185 sq. Ft. (17.2 sq. M); Approx. Wht 1200 lbs. (544 kg); Ballast 220 lbs (100kg). Note - various rig options plus an open and motor version are also available.
