L650 – additional data and plans

A lot of what has been learnt through our successful skiff designs has gone into creating this exciting new sport boat. While the aft sections are reasonably flat and wide for high speed planning and to help with form stability, care has been taken with the prismatic coefficient not to over do this, and make down wind sailing easy.

Features include a retracting, gybing keel, retracting prod, storage lockers beside the keel (one for outboard engine) and main sail boom sheating. Construction is from a detailed CNC cut file, cedar core hull bottom, foam core for hull topsides, deck, and all interior structure, all skinned in a light carbon laminate.

CNC kits available. The first 5 boats have been launched – T/Y versions and sports boats. As of Nov 2014 2 further boats are under construction in both Australia and NZ
