New 22' Cat Rig Yawl

We are currently excited to be designing a new boat for an Australian builder.

Construction is in wood/epoxy and is novel in several ways, making substantial use of CNC router or laser cut parts, for which we are supplying detailed DXF files. This should cut the build time considerably and produce an accurate strong hull.

The rig is a Cat Yawl, with a fully-battened loose footed lug main, set on an unstayed mast and a lug mizzen.

With a long coachroof and a dog-house, we get standing headroom in the galley and WC compartment and good sitting headroom in the saloon and forecabin.

We'll be posting the design plans in due course.

As an aside, we are in the process of developing DXF files for several of our current designs, so that builders will have the option of buying pre-cut ply parts from a local supplier.

George, I've just found you through Jordan boats. This sounds like an interesting boat. When will plans come to light?

I've just seen your comment -- we are in the final proposal stages right now with perhaps a couple of days more work to do on the drawings. Once these are complete we can start work on the actual building drawings. So it is quite a long process! We should be publishing the proposal drawings on the site very shortly however.

I'm reading your weblog with interest.

George
