The Kari 24' is based on the Kari 2 which, itself, was based on the lines taken off the original Kari Faering. In the case of this new 24' design the client wanted a rounder hull with slightly harder bilges and so we modeled a 6 plank per side design. This gives her relatively more volume and a higher carrying capacity with increased stability and makes her look more like a Viking Longboat.
Construction is for clinker or stitch and tape plywood and details are given for the fitting of an electric outboard in a well or an electric pod.
Full details are also given for the square sail and rig.
