Strumpet

Strumpet was designed for a very experienced yachtsman. He told us he wanted a boat based on the Scottish fishing trawlers distinctive double-ended hull forms for appearance and seaworthiness. She was to “drink six, feed four, and sleep two” as he told the magazine editor who interviewed him while aboard the completed boat.

Her construction is carvel planking on steam bent frames. Some of the planking at the stern also required steam bending. She has a single diesel with a large prop and generous sized rudder for great control.

She has two berths in the foc’sle, dining in the pilothouse, and galley and head in the after part of the deckhouse.

There is an alternative motorsailer version with a ketch rig, and larger great cabin in the stern.
