The design is from the board of noted high performance racing dinghy and small yacht designer Keith Callaghan. Keith also has to his credit over the last 20 years a number of successful lifting centreboard 20ft+ daysailers / weekenders and trailer sailers.

Design History

The design has brought together ideas and concepts that have already been proven, tried and tested. The hull shape and rig is an evolution from the successful Blue Motion 550 (see Yachts and Yachting June 2013 for a test report) which itself was an evolution and development from the successful Hazardous 0-9 Merlin Rocket design.
