Here are a few 3D views of this project.

This small yacht is definitely not a dinghy, although its size might be confusing. It is suitable for two to three adults during a day sail, and can accommodate two persons overnight. A unique feature of this sailboat, however, is the possibility of changing the daggerboard to suit the conditions. One of them is made of solid plywood and is intended for use with a full crew aboard. However, a second optional daggerboard is provided, containing 60 kg of lead, thus providing the necessary stability when sailing single handed.

A second feature of this design is the sail reducing mechanism, which is utterly simple: it acts as a furling genoa, which means that the manoeuvre is completed in a matter of seconds, and the sail area is always exactly right for the conditions.
