This is a very special boat and was custom made by Chris Bowman in Sri Lanka for journeys around the world.
Not that you would sail her around the world but her unique design enables you to load her into a 40 foot sea container and post her to any destination that takes your fancy.
She was made in 2010 from laminated Oregon for the keel and backbone. The hull is strip cedar 25 mm over laminated strip frames.
She is glassed inside and out with 850 grm Quadraxial cloth using SP systems epoxy.
The keel is moulded steel to naca foil shape with 25 x 300 corton steel spine.
The bulb has 1256 Kgs of lead with 8 x 25 mm 316 S/S keel bolts and nuts.
The mast is 13.6m laminated Huon pine.
She has hill sails new in 2017.
