This handy pocket cruiser has been designed for a client who wanted an ultra simple and cheap sailing cruiser for estuary sailing and which would get him across the Channel. The construction could not be more simple and rugged with pre-shaped hull panels and ply frames. She uses 11 sheets of 1/4’’ ply and is very quick to build. She has two berths good stowage space and is 14’x 5’6’’. The drawings now show details for a 6’ beam version as well as details of an alternative gunter sloop rig and a centreboard. See the Simplicity 20 & 24 in the Yacht page.

The Simplicity 14 plans come with 3 rigs which includes a gunter rig and the junk rig, below.

The drawings also give details for a centreplate, slotted lee daggerboards and long ballast keel options as well as the standard bilge plates.
