The L650 Trailer Yacht measures to the New Zealand and Australian trailer yacht rules. This boat has the same hull and rig as the L650 Sport Boat. Features include a retracting keel, retracting prod, storage lockers beside the keel (one for outboard engine), main sail boom sheeting and berths to sleep two adults and two children. Construction is from a detailed CNC cut file, cedar core hull bottom, foam core for hull topsides, deck, and all interior structure, all skinned in a light carbon laminate.


“Working with Dan and from his plans was an absolute pleasure when Rob and myself decided to build the L650 Trailer Yacht. His plans leave nothing to the imagination, heavily detailed, complete 3D build guide from start to finish along with his CAD files for all parts to be cut. Any extra drawings we needed, or any questions we had, were sent via email within 24hrs in DXF and PDF for viewing and accurate cutting. Between both Rob and myself we have been exceptionally happy dealing with Dan. The comprehensive drawings, Digital files for CNC cutting and his prompt service was brilliant. We both worked in the marine industry and have never seen such a great, well thought through design package, support and cooperation as what we received for our L650 "Depthcharge Ethel"
