Thank you for your interest in our Cosmos design range.
The Cosmos Series is one of the original Schionning design ranges. The round-bilge designs have been incredibly popular over the last 20 years and we have many on the water, and cruising the globe. The curved styling of this range means a combination of strip-planking and flat panels are used in the construction process. Strip planking is by no means more difficult, however it can be more time consuming depending on experience.
The Cosmos designs are no longer available, these pages are for reference or for those who are looking at a second-hand Cosmos design.
The 1160 follows our Cosmos design concept of a beautifully balanced, easily driven low volume boat set on slim, long waterline hulls. This produces a cat that will sail easily with a moderate rig making her fast and easy to handle and coupled with the low volume accommodation, she is cheaper to build than boats of similar length. She has long hulls out forward giving heaps of buoyancy and safety for downwind flying. In case of rounding up or being caught unawares by a bullet the long hulls improve forward and diagonal stability often lacking in modern short ended boats.

The Cosmos 1250 is our first design engineered to comply with Australian Survey Standards. She is currently being built and passed through NSW, SA and WA. It is advised that any specific survey requirements for your state or country are researched fully. The 1250 is a fantastic design with great accomodation and good performance.

With a Waterline Beam to Length ratio of 12.3:1 and a Bruce Number of 1.36 Heavy (cruising) or 1.46 in light trim the Cosmos 1320 will be a very efficient cruising cat. Her length allows good payload for cruising with reasonable comfort and offers better comfort in rough conditions. She has a fairly standard layout with three double cabins, two forward and one aft, a large head and shower aft in the in port hull and the option of one or two en-suite heads forward in each hull.

The Cosmos 1750 was designed as a pure thoroughbred with long waterline length, a good waterline length to beam ratio of 13.3:1 and good bridgedeck clearance of 1 metre. Accommodation is clean, spacious, medium volume accommodation; not quantity but quality is its aim. Generous space in each cabin and the overall width of the saloon and cockpit could be turned into sophisticated luxury, giving the boat a depth of quality rather than one packing in quantity.
