This yacht was designed as part of my design thesis. It is for build in aluminium with longitudinal framing and internal lead ballast in the keel. Draft was kept at 6 and a half foot. For extended cruising, I like the idea of a doghouse. It has the nav station, a small seating area and a small cooker up there so it’s easier to make the tea. It has a standard sloop rig but with a staysail.

LOA: 49.7 ft / LWL: 42.54 ft / BOA: 14.42 ft / BWL: 12.48 ft / Draft fairbody: 2.95 ft / Draft max.: 6.5 ft / Displacement/length ratio: 224 / Sail area/displacement: 17
