$34.00 - $270.00


Sapphire is a simple 'V' bottom single chine plywood design and will suit the steam enthusiast who wants a good sized launch which does not take too long to build but which looks very elegant. Construction uses a simple ply framework which is set up upside down along with Pine stringers before the hull planking is applied over-size and trimmed. The standard layout has two cockpits, one fore and the other aft with a central engine space but she could be fitted out with various different arrangements.
