In this design a client asked for the largest and safest single handed offshore yacht that he could get on a very limited budget. For your money. a dory or sharpie gives you more length per £100 than any other shape. Add to this type of hull a simple box ballast keel filled with scrap iron and cement and you have a very seaworthy, inexpensive and quickly built design. The junk rig has been used for it's safe easily handled single handed qualities and the design has been set up so that virtually all operations are controlled from the security of the doghouse. The construction drawings are for Foam Sandwich Fibreglass building. However, the design can easily be adapted for simple ply construction and the keel arrangement may be altered to bilge or centreboard (we will be very pleased to advice and supply drawings for any modifications to any of our designs).
