Design 123, 20' four-berth yawl


Design 123, at 20' is the largest of our Pocket Cruisers. As with all of these boats, she is a roomy for her size, and is a robust and sea-kindly sail boat, with an excellent cruising accommodation. The boat is built using the most modern of materials – WEST™ system boat-building epoxies.
As with many of our designs she is built on laminated ring frames (six in this case) and a laminated backbone. I often see comments that laminating is difficult and time consuming but this is not really the case. Laminated ring frames, in particular, offer an elegant, visually attractive and time-saving construction system. When you are building a boat, you have to consider the job as a whole. Just getting the hull built as fast as possible is not really very useful if you make yourself a lot of extra work in the process. Read more …

The hull skin can be epoxy ply lapstrake as shown here or cold-moulded wood-epoxy. Both skin types give a strong, rigid and relatively lightweight, long-lasting low-maintenance structure.
