19' Jola Gaff Cutter Plans
This cracker of a little ship, will take you cruising into shallow waters and creeks whilst at the same time provide a seaworthy yacht for coastal and cross-channel sailing.
Starting from aft, she has an outboard well, spacious self-draining cockpit and a cabin with up to 4 berths and space for a Porta Potti WC and small galley - if you do not want 4 berths you can have 2 or 3 and a larger galley area.
Like many of our small designs the centreplate is housed below the cabin sole and the plans show both Gaff Cutter and Bermudan Cutter rigs.
Construction details are shown for stitch and tape, ply over frame and clinker ply construction.
