New Arrow 1500 Day Charter Released

The Arrow 1500 is one of the most popular designs in the Schionning Designs series', and we've now released an Arrow 1500DC (Day Charter) version that features an open bridgedeck and a layout perfectly suited to day charter operations and indeed any commercial charter. The new design can carry a maximum capacity of 32 guests, with a focus remaining on performance so that those aboard can have a true sailing experience. Shallow draft, daggerboards and a strong stiff vessel mean nosing into beaches or destinations for loading/unloading is an absolute breeze. 

Initial design renders are available now on the preliminary design page here, with detailed Study Plans coming soon. 

razorcat 52 production catamaran


Introducing the RAZORCAT 52, an exciting new production design that has been developed by Anchor Yachts and built by Pacific Seacraft located in North Carolina, USA. The focus of this design is elegant performance. An offshore capable multihull which is easily controlled and operated by one person from the safety and comfort of a central inside helm station, featuring 360 degree views throughout the bridge deck. All lines (with the exception of the genoa/spinnaker sheets) lead to two electric reversible winches located either side of the helm. The genoa/ spinnaker sheets are handled by the two electric reversible winches in the cockpit (that can also be controlled remotely at the helm). 

View the design page here, or see the Razorcats website here to inquire about this exciting new sail-away vessel. 

g-force 1200 HUEY launched

G-Force 1200 'HUEY' Launched in Adelaide

A big congratulations to home builder Greg Hettner who has recently launched his beautiful G-Force 1200 named 'HUEY' in Adelaide, Australia. With help from his son Sean, the Hettner team have done a fantastic job and the mast and rigging was recently installed with 'HUEY' taking her first test sail! We're sure to see more from this pocket rocket in the months to come, as Greg and Sean hope to get her out sailing as much as possible. 

The G-Force 1200 was built using a pre-cut Duflex kit, resulting in a lightweight, strong, stiff performance catamaran that looks great and will perform beyond expectations. For more information on the G-Force 1200 design, see the design page here. Well done Greg and Sean!

G-Force 1700C 'WILDFIRE' Launches

After over 5 years of hard work and dedication, Clint and Gaye Jennings have launched their beautiful and unique G-Force 1700C 'WILDFIRE'! She certainly lives up to her name with an eye-catching exterior paint job and a very distinctive style that differs from her G-Force sisters. The interior and finishes will be just as exquisite as the exterior, and we cannot wait for the finishing touches to go on. During the build of this boat Clint and Gaye also became close friends of Jeff and Lorraine, as well as very enthusiastic Schionning supporters and we thank them for their ongoing effort over the past years and we can't wait to see them enjoying WILDFIRE on the water in some beautiful cruising destinations. For more information on the G-Force 1700C design, plus a photo gallery (updated as much as possible) see the design portfolio here. There is also a Facebook page following the boat's progress here.

Current Marine Launches Second Arrow 1200

Current Marine in Knysna, South Africa have been hard at work on their second Arrow 1200 which has recently hit the water and is floating light on her lines. Recently launched 'DACHA' impressed many with her speed and sailing ability during her delivery, and we're sure to expect the same from this new addition. She is floating light although loaded with 250kg of fuel and water at the time and of course she is yet to be fitted with rigging, mast and sails. The Arrow 1200 designs are steadily becoming known for their simplicity of construction (100% flat panel kits), comfortable accommodation and exciting performance. 

For more information on the Arrow 1200 design, and to see more photos of the recent launch including interior shots, see the design portfolio here.
