This 8.5m Stow Away project is being built in New Zealand and is now well underway. This is a DuFlex balsa kit with some customised areas for the owner. The project started in September last year and the builders have made good progress since then.

This design is part of the Stow Away range which is a power-sailer concept set on semi-displacement hulls. The hulls are extremely efficient for both sail or power performance with a good beam to length ratio. The semi-displacement hulls have proven to be very comfortable at sea due to the fine entry hulls. This boat will be fitted with twin 50hp outboards and in flat water estimate to achieve a 15 to 20 knot cruise speed. Under sail this design should also perform well with an estimated average cruise speed of 8 knots. With a 4m beam this boat will fit into a standard monohull marina berth. Internally the design has full headroom throughout due to a wider cabin design that creates the headroom in the hulls.
