SEA SHANTY, trawler style, power, catamaran, design, plans, kit, DIY, schionning, multihull, composite, fibreglass

The Sea Shanty

The Sea Shanty evolved as an idea of Jeff's to create a large stable cruising platform, able to carry enough of the cruising toys to make it a real home away from home. The huge cockpit and multiple cabins make the Shanty into a real palace on the water. Motorbikes or a small car could be loaded via the aft ramp, if desired. Some of the key features of this design range are:

--- A world cruiser, she has a generous payload to afford luxury
--- Not all of the internal furniture is built in, household items may be used
--- Moderate cruising speeds from 9-12 knots up to 24 knots
--- Combination of strip planking and flat panel construction
--- Fantastic for those that wish to escape it all and explore the globe
