57′ (17.45m) Ocean cruiser/live-aboard. Beam 16′. Draught 8′. Sloop, cutter or ketch rig.
As with most Hartley boats she can be lengthened by 10% to 63ft. Centre or aft cockpit. Plans give three types of accommodation. A real ship for serious ocean sailors or chartering.
Plans are drawn for the hull to be constructed in ferro-cement but can also be adapted to wood strip-plank construction. If you are already familiar with steel plate forming the plans can also be adapted for constructing the hull in steel.
There is also a study pack available for this plan. Click here to view.
