Here’s a first rate cruising sailboat that falls just within the range of possibility for the home builder. Moderate displacement and a generous rig guarantee sparkling performance.
The long keel and hollow garboards ensure a strong, low stressed hull structure well suited to the amateur builder as well as the rigors of long distance voyaging.
