52′ (15.85m) Ocean cruiser/live aboard. Beam is 14’10” and draught 6’6″.
An ocean-going sailer of modern design but with traditional long keel. She has a full 6’6″ headroom throughout her accommodation. There are 8 permanent berths in 3 private cabins, plus a watchkeepers bunk in the wheelhouse. Plus temp space for 3 more berths in main saloon on the setees. This makes her accommodation perfect for either charter work or as an ocean cruising floating home or both.
A 75hp diesel engine will give 8knots and a 175hp will give 10knots. Royal Suva and Dateline accommodations are interchangeable.
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.
