This is a real small cruiser from the board of Francois Vivier.
Like the other boats from this designer, it combines traditional lines with modern technology to offer good sailing performance allied with light weight. This is achieved by epoxy construction and a cast centre plate giving total ballast of 150kg. The total weight of 700kg and draft of only 0.43m with the plate up makes the boat easy to trail, launch and recover.
Two metres long cockpit benches are retained, whilst the cabin is large enough for two adults and a child overnight and for a heads and cooking facilities.
