New Design No. 178 – Starfire 23

We've added a new design, the Starfire 23 – the first of a class of lapstrake sailboats 6m (20') and above.

The boat is built on seven ply-sandwich ring frames that can easily be CNC cut. There are six strakes in all – a flat bottom strake, four strakes in the hull proper and a full-length coachroof strake, all of which can be CNC cut if wished; we will also provide the data to mark out and cut all the ply components by hand if a builder prefers.

The design features a full width coachroof which gives a spacious interior and simplifies construction considerably.

The accommodation has four berths, a small saloon, a good galley and a separate WC compartment.

Build plans for this design will be available soon.
