The attractive little SKUA has been designed for trailer sailing. She has the option of carrying salt water ballast in 2 tanks built-in to the boat and giving her a total ballast weight of 550 kg. 480 kg of this is water which is discharged when the boat is recovered onto the trailer giving her a trailer weight of around 900 kg. She has 2 comfortable berths a w.c. and galley but she could be fitted out with berths under the cockpit seating. She has an outboard well and a deep safe cockpit and foredeck well. The gaff sloop rig is mounted in a tabernacle and her centreboard arrangement has been designed so as not to encroach on the cabin space, is raised from the cockpit and pivoted outside the hull to prevent leaks. There is a choice of two methods of construction - the computer faired mould shapes are given for strip planked construction and the panel shapes and details are given for ply epoxy construction. Details are included for a schooner bowed cutter version with a larger volume hull - details are also included for a lug rig and bilge boards.

The plans also include details for a Bermudan Sloop rig (below)

The plans also include details for a Lug Yawl rig.
