Beach Point 18


Woodwind is shown here after her stub fin keel was installed. The owner had wanted to experiment with a folding fan centerboard as used in lighter sailing canoes in the 1890’s. It proved problematic and we went back to my original intention for a short fin keel. The boat sits well on her trailer and launches easily. She draws just over two feet.

This design would also make a powerful open or half-decked boat either as a beach cruiser or daysailer.

Dimensions:

  • LBP     18′ – 0″
  • LWL 17′ – 1 1/4″
  • Beam 6′ – 0″
  • Draft 2′ – 0″

Sail Area:

  • Main         90 sq. ft.
  • Mizzen 32 sq. ft.
  • Jib 32 sq. ft.
  • Total 154 sq. ft.
