GY23 - 7.0m Day Boat

This is a concept design for an open Day Boat.

Plumb bow, deep V-shaped hull, fairly wide chine in the bow sections for enjoyable and dry trip. The long waterline would provide smooth ride by reducing the pitch movement.

The design aims to give something to families  looking for some fun time at sea.

The boat, including its structure, stability, self drain cockpit, down flooding angles, etc., is designed to meet the requirements  of the EU Recreational Craft Directive (RCD II).

Composite structure.
