The Ranworth is a typical Broads type sailing cruiser with generous beam and relatively large sail area to catch the wind above the reeds. She has 3 berths and space for a small galley and wc compartment. The cockpit is generous in size and could take a boom tent. The cabin top lifts to give more headroom.
Construction is for Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds. There is space for a small inboard engine in the forepeak (which could be connected hydraulically to a prop. shaft) however many would use an outboard.
