Lifestyle & Use

A proven seaworthy craft and the original design was used to deliver post to Scottish shores in the 1900's. Its an ideal family boat with wide cockpit and good dry storage space. The stern locker is large enough to store the outboard. The rowing seat is removable leaving a clear cockpit two metres long, which can be camped in overnight with a boom tent. Easy to launch and recover on the trailer and can be towed by the family car.

Broker's Comments

The Post Boat hulls originate from the 1900's post boat which used to deliver post around the Scottish coast. With her beamy hull and shallow draught, these boats are perfect for exploring creeks and coastal inlets, plus they're easy to launch and recover. Simple to rig and short enough to store in your garage at home. Great for teaching a family learning to sail. Sails well in light airs, can also be rowed when the wind dies.
RCD Category C: up to 5 people
