An in-shore cruiser offering minimal camping facilities by Gavin Atkin
Free plans for the more experienced boatbuilders among us. This boat is intended as a lightweight pocket cruiser with easily driven lines and a traditionally inspired sail plan.
The design is lightweight and small to ensure that the boat can be rowed and trailered on land by two people relatively easily. A small outboard may also be used.
An important innovation is the addition of twin daggerboards designed to provide both upwind performance and support when the boat is grounded – streamlined blocks are attached part way up the length of the twin daggerboards to act as ‘legs’ when bottomed out.
Length overall 19′ 8″ Beam 5′ 8″. Trailering weight 700lbs
