18' Bungay Broads DayboatThis design is based upon the traditional daysailers and small yachts that can be hired on the Norfolk Broads.
Construction is Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds/jig. The mast is stepped in a tabernacle for easy raising/lowering and she can take 4-6 adults comfortably. Storage is under the fore deck either side of the mast.
The keel consists of lead ballast bolted to a central steel plate (which has a flange at the top throâ bolted to the inner keel) - the plate is sheathed in wood/epoxy to a foil shape.
