Design 055 - 15' half-deck yawl

Design 055 is a modern full-bodied design, providing an exceptionally robust, sea-kindly performance. With a modern high-peaked gaff on the main and standing lug on the mizzen, she is a delight to sail.
When it blows up, drop the mizzen and jib and sail under main and staysail, for a very snug heavy-weather rig – the main also reefs down. Or experiment with mizzen and staysail, or mizzen and jib. And several builders have preferred to have a single roller-furling headsail instead of the cutter-headed rig. The vessel can also be cutter rigged (no mizzen) – this requires the main boom and gaff to be lengthened a little, and the main sheet attachment to be moved aft on the boom..

Carrying up to six people, she makes a perfect family boat for day-sailing or longer expeditions, perhaps camping or exploring creeks and estuaries. The boat is easily trailed and very quick to launch and set up ready to go.
