LOA 17ft 9 LWL 15ft 6 Beam 6ft 5 Draught 8"/4ft Weight 425kg
Heavy cast iron swinging keel that is lifted by a winch inside the cabin making it flush with the hull enabling the yacht to float in 8 inches of water and put the ballast 4ft down in the water where it is needed when the keel is lowered.
Sails consist of the main sail and furling genoa on a Plastimo roller reefing system.
Sits on a galvanised single axle trailer.
Very easily towed by a small family car and weighs less than 750kg so does not need to be braked.
Great little pocket cruiser that is fast and seaworthy, easily launched/recovered and is at home on the inland waterway network as she is offshore.
