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.
