Wynfall

Wynfall represents the smallest boat that I feel is safe and practical for extended coastal or ocean cruising. Although only 26' long, she's a big boat with a waterline of almost 24', and displacing 9500 lbs.

We built the prototype for Wynfall in the Pacific Northwest, launching her in 1988. Since then I have cruised and lived aboard her at various times, and she has proven a success in every way. She is a joy to sail: well balanced and responsive, with a good turn of speed. She is also comfortable, having a remarkable amount of living and storage space, and an easy motion.

The success of the design is reflected by the attention she has received: she has been featured in WoodenBoat, Classic Boat, Waterkampioen, and Water Craft magazines.

Plans show strip and carvel planked options, and she is also available with a centerboard.

One boat was built to this design in Portugal and then sailed to Brazil; she is now sailing in the Caribbean.
