Class Globe 5.80
Certainly from what we have seen of the hull design anyone handy with a jigsaw should be able to cut one out of marine plywood, stitch and glue with epoxy resin in just over 500 hours and then sail-race single or double-handed across the bay or an ocean or two.
Environmental friendly by design

We have received our copy of the plans for hull No. 6 where we are currently working through the 2D image files and putting together a 3D CAD drawing to fully understand the construction with the ambition to start cutting out the bulkheads over the summer, followed by assemby during the autumn – winter months 2020.
