The Duette 14 is a round bilged strip planked cat boat which can be built either as an open day boat or, with it's removable cabin top, as a pocket cruiser with berth space for 2 people and room for a small galley. The mould shapes have been computer generated so that there is no requirement to loft and the builder can get straight into making the building mould. She has a steel centreplate which is "L" shaped so that the centreboard case is kept below the cabin sole and does not encroach on the living space. This arrangement also allows the centreboard pivot to be kept outside below the hull thus avoiding leaks. The old large single sailed cat boat rig is fine but can get a little unwieldy so in the case of Duette, we have broken this down into a gaff sloop with more easily handled sails. The mast is stepped in a tabernacle for easy raising and lowering.
