Following along the same lines as her smaller sister, this cruiser is an ultra simple boat with plenty of space and performance for her size. She has room for 3 or 4 berths plus galley and portable wc. Construction simply involves fixing pre-shaped side panels to ply frames, adding chine and gunwale stringers on the outside and then applying a double thickness of ply to the bottom. Other pre-shaped pieces are then added before fixing a ply ballast box filled with scrap iron and cement. Centreboard or bilge keels may be fitted and she has 4 berths, space for a galley and wc and a handy gunter rig. She is simple but immensely strong and efficient.
