$34.00 - $203.00


The additional 1'4" hull length over the original 14' version gives a lot of useful additional space - enough for 2 comfortable berths, a small galley area and curtained side space for a Porta Potti type wc.

Unlike the 14 foot which has fixed bilge keels, this version has a centreplate (with an external pivot) which means that the interior is not divided by a case.

Construction is centred around a simple plywood framework consisting of a fore and aft girder (which includes the centreplate case) onto which are slotted the ply frames, bulkheads and transom. The hull panels are then fitted over the frameworks and the chines finished with epoxy. The chines can also be solid wood if required.

A pretty looking and simple little ship with plenty of cruising potential.
