This dinghy was designed as a simple tender for a yacht. It's size was dictated by deck stowage and it had to be lightweight but sturdy and traditional looking. It has turned out to be a minor success as two were built in Greece before we managed to get the prototype finished and tested where it performed as well as the reports we'd had from Greece.
It has two options for sailing but the dagger board option works best.
Built, surprisingly quickly, using the clinker plywood method over a simple mould frame and then released to fit out with seats and trim etc.
This design is only available as the full complete plans package with drawings, step by step instructions and full size patterns.
This design has been taken on by Paul's Boatshed and they have added their own improvements to it.

Custom Built Ready for the Water – from £1125 for standard build

The standard built boat is built in a quality marine plywood, trim and seats are fitted with bottom runners to complete the build. The hull is then finished - one colour outside, white or varnished inside with varnished wood trim and seats. Black nylon rowlocks, basic wooden oars, a 5m mooring rope fitted and it's ready to launch. If you prefer, these boats can be built to order which gives you an opportunity to decide on a colour and make any other changes you might want. Depending on those changes, your boat could be ready in 21 - 28 days from receipt of payment. We build your boat to your specification on our standard hull build adding or omitting items as you want it.
