A ships whaler for the 21st century.
This is an updated version, a little bigger and more capable with an increased sail area and greater load capacity. The original sail area remains for heavy weather or training purposes.
Available in multiple custom versions with two rigs - lugsail yawl and gaff cutter - and four versions with a fixed keel or centreboard. Also available is an all-electric fantail passenger launch with a solar-panelled canopy. Illustrated is the yawl with a two-berth cuddy cabin. The boat will be fast, stable, sea-kindly and easily sailed by one. Suggested uses include tourist trips, coastal voyaging, cargo transfer, ships boat, sail training and private adventuring.
