Launch Year

Composite Balsa Duflex

Launched December 2010 to plans from Craig Schionning with minor improvements to steering, rudder size & shape, & engine access. 3 separate cabins with 2 generous queen size bunks on the forward bridgedeck each having an overhead opening hatch, reading lights, & fan, plus a double in the starboard stern also with 2 hatches. All bunks have thick quality mattresses & hanging lockers. The galley on the bridgedeck has plenty of light & ventilation, pressure water, gas oven, 2 burner stove, plenty of storage & a built in eutectic refrigerator with separate freezer that makes meal preparation a pleasure.
There are 2 toilets - starboard bow & in the port stern bathroom. Motor heated hot water (or 240v when at a marina) is available to the bathroom & the bridgedeck galley sink.
Twin helms with autopilot which make berthing & short handed sailing easily achievable, as do the furling headsails. All sail controls (except main halyard & main reefing) are in the cockpit serviced by 4 generous winches Anderson 52T & 46T. The anchor winch can be used to raise the main. 2 Anderson 40T winches are on the mast for halyards or reefing with adequate jammers or cleats. All sheet/halyard winches are self tailing 2 speed.
The boat is easily driven so a headsail is nice for a leisurely day. (tacking included). A single motor is usually all that is required in normal conditions halving fuel consumption.

This is an easy boat to use, twin motors make for easy manoeuvring, it can be sailed under headsail alone including tacking, short handed is manageable, the galley up & galley facilities keep the cook happy because they are still part of the action. The boat sits nicely at anchor - doesn't wander to much & no loud noises from the hull eg slapping water, give quiet comfortable nights. Standing headroom throughout - Hulls 1.96m, Bridgedeck 2.09m.
Reef the main at 12-15 knots & notice you are more comfortable & lose little speed. The daggerboards definitely help windward work & protect the rudders. If you get into cruising mode then leave them down about 1/3 to 1/2. Set & forget.
