Cape Henry 21
Plywood Lapstrake Traditional Trailer-sailerThis Dix Design, the lapstrake plywood Cape Henry 21, was developed out of his earlier GRP Cape Cutter 19 design. The Hull is styled after the traditional English sailing craft, from which many modern designs have been born. The Cape Cutter proved to become very popular; with requests for similar boats in larger sizes Dix Design developed the Cape Henry, which produced 1/3 more boat in terms of volume and displacement, with resulting benefits in space, stability and performance.
In building you own kit you will learn many skills along the way, it has been developed so that any handyman with basic skills should be able to build their own Cape Henry of which to be proud of.
We supply all that is required to construct one hull and deck unit. We do not include for the boat's interior or paints and varnish, these extras can also be supplied on request.
The kit can be bought in two different grades of ply, the one being the 'WBP' (Waterproof and boil proof), which is a heavier grade but saves in cost. The other grade is the Genuine BS1088 Ockume Marine Ply, which is lightweight but will cost more. All ply is CNC cut, this includes the bulkheads, hull, deck, coachroof and cockpit.
