Stornaways were designed along the lines of traditional English fishing boats capable of sailing just under jib & mizzen in winds up to 30 knots. This boat was fitted to a very high standard with a revised rig designed by Steve Walker Sails to suit Tasmanian conditions. She is powered by a six-horse power Yamaha axillary outboard and happily motors at six knots.
The boat sails beautifully and because of it’s shallow draft it can negotiate low tidal waters.
Her Oregon masts are easily rigged by one person with the specialised, mast raising crane. She supports a Genoa, Jib, Marconi Mainsail and Gunter Rigged Mizzen. Both headsails are on foilers.
Anchoring and reefing can be performed from the safety of the main cabin.
