Scruffie Marine has just launched their new 19-foot dayboat, bristling with innovative solutions to perennial problems. Rig and launch single- handed in 15 minutes? Yes! Dining for 6 people? Yes! Hire her for a weekend? Soon. OK then – safe, stable, nimble, quick, versatile, shallow draught? Tick. Alright – cadet training, disabled friendly, family dayboat? Certainly. How about self-righting, a self-draining cockpit, offshore capable with a squaresail? Yes! Really?
Check this little lugger out – we believe she’s something rather special – a very nice looking little yawl with a boomless brailing mainsail and a semi-displacement hull. A planing lugger? Oh, come on. Unlikely but possible, although not with her electric outboard auxiliary.
The new EX stands for expedition or exploration – she is just under container size, weighs around 600kg and number 1 is already in service taking Duke of Edinburgh Award students on 5-day voyages of discovery in Moreton Bay, Queensland.
Sick of the 35-footer eating up the capital in a marina? Try this for a refreshing take on the day sail experience.
Queensland yacht builders Scruffie Marine announce a new trailerable yacht that is set to rewrite the sailing rule book – the Sienna 19.
Combining an evolution of their racing gaff cutter hull (Secret 20) with a variation of their well proven lugsail yawl rig (Stornaway 18) the new boat points to a very different future.
We are seeking manufacturing partners in North and South America, the EU and Asia.
