Sango was designed as a larger version of Wizard. The extra length implies more speed, more seakindliness and more load carrying ability. The down side is that its a bigger load to trail and the mast is longer and heavier so harder to hoist.

The cuddy is very similar to Wizard, but a bit longer, so the galley area is larger. The cross section (see drawing on the Wizard page) is similar to Wizard.

Wings on the hull sides add to the stowage space in the hulls. The cockpit is longer than Wizard's making it more comfortable for a crowd.

A flat panel (plywood) dory hull version also available for those who prefer simple building over ultimate performance. Hull shape is almost identical to the original
