Merlin sailing

Merlin in action

Design differences over the Canterbury Tales are as follows:

The frontal area has been reduced by 6%.

Less rocker throughout the boat.

Less immersed hull depth at the rise of floor due to the extra buoyancy around the front area of the centreboard box and also under the helms feet area.

0.3 square meters less wetted surface than the tales.

This unique Joe Richards design is available from the Boatyard on request.
