Eider


Category: Sailboats Cruising

The Eider is a wonderful 17' 3" cabin sailboat. It is a great step up in size and function from the 15' Nancy's China.

Her small cabin has good room to sleep two with a bit of extra space for gear to be stowed and not have to be moved out of the cabin when the sleeping bags are unrolled.

The self-bailing cockpit allows her to live on her mooring throughout our rainy spring and fall (and all-to-often our northwest summers as well).

The kit is assembled inverted over a computer-cut construction frame that indexes the bulkheads at the proper spacing, paralllel, axially-aligned and level. The hull panels are joined end-to-end with our engineered puzzle splices, avoiding the need for fiddly and difficult-to-align scarphing. From this sturdy foundation, you can be sure that you can build an accurate boat.
