New Design 165

This originates from a stretched version of Design 119 but is now developed as a completely new design. The first plans are now becoming available with the complete set following over the next month or two.

Design 165Two basic versions will be available – a saloon version and a doghouse version. They both share much of the same structures, rig, deck layout and interior layout.

The doghouse version has a long doghouse which gives standing headroom in the galley, separate wc compartment and the main saloon.

This image shows the doghouse version sail and deck plan. The saloon and doghouse coamings are upright to give maximum interior space; the cockpit coamings twist out to about 10º to give added comfort in the cockpit.

The doghouse roof overhangs the cockpit by about 200mm (8") to give extra shelter in the cockpit – and a nice place to sit up against the main bulkhead.

Design 165The spacious, light and airy interior has a good galley, a separate toilet compartment, a convertible V-berth forward and a comfortable quarter berth aft. The table stores on the outside of the WC bulkhead and hinges down over the centrecase.

With good standing headroom in the doghouse version, she will make a viable live-aboard small cruising boat as well as a great traditional style sailboat for holidays and weekends.

More details of both versions are under the Pocket Cruiser section – Design No. 165.
