HAKA 86

There are many ways of voyaging and Haka 86 is a tool to meet people without offending them with a luxurious yacht. The first built in Italy has cruised to Thailand. This is an extremely basic boat to be self-sufficient and left alone on a beach to stay ashore for a while. She can be towed home to be cheaply wintered between two adventures.

We optimised the hull shape to obtain a sustained cruising speed, comfortable motion and easy steering with a windvane. The pivoting board provides the shoalest draft to approach beaches, dry out in tidal anchorages or sail up rivers. Foam-sandwich construction is immensely strong while the deck is built from flat panels to save building time. The sail plan is rugged with a low centre of pressure. The staysail will help to claw from a lee shore in a gale.

The raised deck provides standing headroom, all round visibility, proper ventilation, protects the cockpit and help recovering from a capsize. The accommodation plan is suited to passagemaking.
