Don't be deceived by Janus' simple dory shaped hulls (which make it a very easy boat to build). It has a lot of internal room for its length and a surprisingly good performance.

Trailering and assembly are easy as the flat bottomed hulls remain upright unsupported.

Janus is the best choice for the less experienced builder or sailor and for those who prefer simplicity.
