A versatile little cruiser
Versatility was kept in mind throughout the design process of this boat, to give a range of options to suit requirements.
Hull shape was developed to maximise interior space relative to hull length while maintaining good hydrodynamic qualities. The waterline is fairly fine forward for beating ability but the forward sections flare above waterline to give reserve bouyancy and a dry ride. This flare works with a shallow forefoot and powerfull quarters to give excellent downwind control and speed while also maintaining a balanced waterplane when heeled.
Displacement will vary a small amount depending on the construction material chosen but will not be far different from the figure given.
Overall this design provides a fast and comfortable small cruiser which is easily handled for short-handed cruising. She has optional reduced draft to get into most anchorages and has ocean crossing capability to get there in the first place.
