We have covered this project being built in New Zealand in an earlier post whilst under construction. After some Covid related delays, this boat has now been launched and looks very well finished. It appears that the builder and owners have tastefully finished this boat to a very high standard. For those of you unfamiliar with this design, it is a power-sailer concept capable of good performance under either sail or power. This is a compact design with standing headroom in both the hulls and bridgedeck cabin however headroom is achieved in the hulls by having the cabin overhang the hull gaining the space required. The internal accomodation is surprising with a galley-up and a generous sized dinette oposite on the bridgedeck. This boat has the main double berth adjacent to the dinette with access from the Starboard hull and the head/shower aft of this. In the opposite hull there are two single bunks, positioned in each end. There are a couple of variations for this design, including a large head and shower in the forward part of the Port hull.

The owners have only driven the boat a short distance to their marina berth however they are planning to do some more extensive sea-trials when the weather improves. We will keep you informed of these updates.

A client in WA has engaged us to customize this design to suit his particular requirements. He requested to build this boat using Polyethylene plastic sheet. Being considerably heavier than the standard Duflex material usually used for this design, the hulls needed to be re-designed to allow for the new material.

The new hulls will carry this boat boat well with no sacrifice to freeboard or bridgeck clearance. The PE plastic sheet is welded together and has the advantage of not requiring fairing or painting, the material is supplied pre-coloured. PE has now been used extensivley in boatbuilding and has proven itself as a strong, tough and durable material. A local PE boatbuilding company will be carrying out this project for the client. The boat will be powered with an electric propulsion system and set up for extended cruising.

We will keep you informed as to the progress of this interesting project.
