AZURE



Inspired by Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons series of books, Steve, Fiammetta, and Elena Householder built this 10′ 2″ Acorn Puffin dinghy, AZURE, designed by Iain Oughtred. Under the guise of Otter Dotter Boats and Mater Otter Sail Loft, they built the boat from Iain’s plans and then added a sail made from a SailRite kit. “Some assembly required, wind not included.”

The family launched AZURE on October 2, 2012 and will sail and row her on the Minnesota lakes near their home. Plans and the Arthur Ransome books are available from The WoodenBoat Store
