A tender that
is just right
Both Stuart and I have had several trys at designing
yacht tenders and both have found that they are the hardest
of all boats to get "just right".
Stuart wanted a tender for his lightweight
6 metre trailer yacht, it had to be towed rather than slowed
on deck, had to be light enough to roof rack, carry a fair
load and be stable enough for not so nimble people to climb
in and out of when boarding the bigger boat.
Norse Praam is, like most of Stuart Reid's
designs, derived fro m a traditional boat, the original praam
was designed to carry a large load in often rough seas and
these were exactly the virtues that were needed for today's
use as a yacht tender. She performs well and is much liked
by those who have built her.

Note that we sell sails and are pleased to quote a
freight inclusive price to anywhere in the world, we have
tan or white, the sails come with sailbag, one reef and
are completely ready to go. Prices fluctuate slightly so
we prefer to quote each sail as the demand arises but you
can bet that we are competitive even with the freight included.
