Peggy is a variation of Francis Herreshoff's 'Prudence' design. Redrawn by local designer Adrian Dean, she is just over 22ft on a 8'6" beam. A beautiful coastal weekender cruiser. Rigged as a gaff with bowsprit, she has a stern hung rudder.
All ballast is external and she is powered by a 10hp Yanmar.
Peggy's keel is constructed from Celery Top, and a grown Huon Pine stem from a 1400-year old tree. Planked in 1in splined Huon Pine, copper fastened and solidly framed with steamed Blue Gum.
She has a total displacement of around 2.7 tonnes.
