A very robust and strong hull that has been professionally built in France to a design by Didier Presles. Built with the intention of ocean cruising including voyages in Polar regions, this is a large volume and spacious hull built to a high standard and ready to be completed. Needs rig, systems, engine and coachroof. Pattern for the ballast keel comes with the hull but the keel has not yet been cast. Rare opportunity to take on a project where the really hard work has been done.

This uncompleted project has been built to a design by Didier Presles with the original intention of undertaking ocean voyages including trips in Polar regions. Professionally built by Chantier Nautique Pichavant Yachting in Brittany.
This is a very high capacity hull with a big beam and large depth in hold making her a very spacious and comfortable cruising boat.
Length Overall 47'
Length Waterline 34'
Strip plank epoxy construction using Oregon pine and mahogany. Laminated mahogany frames and floors all closely spaced making this an incredibly strong hull.
Marine plywood deck on laminated deck beams
Designed to have a bermudan cutter rig on alloy spars.
Yanmar diesel engine bought for the boat brand new but never fitted.
8 berths plus the saloon settee berths. Aft double cabin plus a single quarter berth, 4 pilot berths and a single in the fore peak.
Unusual layout with the saloon forward of the mast, the large beam of the design allows this to be done and still have a good size saloon.
Galley is to starboard amidships
Large heads compartment to port
