8.23 m Cutter, Design #145

A new version of an old plan for a very practical small cruiser. In this size range it's easy to fit in everything needed to be comfortable for weekend and summer cruising, with headroom, and still have pleasing proportions. There is a three berth layout, enclosed head and a solid traditional feel. Construction is fully glued which on a long keeled model produces a strong, low stress structure well-suited to the amateur builder.

Plans use metric measurements.
