Second in what will become a classic range of craft is the Stornoway 12. She has 6 planks per side giving her a lovely round hull. The standard drawings give the plank shapes for stitch and epoxy construction but as with all our designs, we can furnish the builder with mould shapes for clinker/ ply or strip planked construction. The stitch and epoxy method is definitely the quicker and easier method and will produce a strong lightweight hull.We have given her a high peaked gaff rig which keeps the spar lengths down and which will not twist off at the head in the same way as the lower peaked gaff rig.
She has plenty of internal space with side benches and she can be built as either a rowing or a rowing/sailing craft and would be ideal for family sailing. She will take the sprit or alternative lug rigs of the Highlander 12 and could be fitted out with a fore deck area.
