Gannet Jr

Gannet, Junior

We are really excited about the newest addition to our gallery of completed projects. The first Gannet Junior was launched in the backwaters of Central Florida just late last month, following its debut at the Mount Dora Boatshow. She met with rave reviews, both on and off the water! Originally designed by Iain Oughtred at 14.5 ft, we have shortened the length in order to make the Gannet Junior a more easily handled craft. Whichever size you would select, the Gannet the Gannet Junior, would be a joy to sail!

With a length of 12 feet, and a beam of 4'10", the Gannet Junior is a comfortable day sailer. She carries 75 sq. ft, with a single gunter sail, which makes for easy handling and control. The addition of a jib sail brings the sail area to 92 sq. ft. The Gannet Junior's hull shape is also ideal for use with a small outboard, 2 - 3 HP, as she planes well.
