Meander lines drawing































The MEANDER offers more space and significantly more speed than Mira. MEANDER is the largest size boat that can be sensibly cruised by a couple.

A big windshield/dodger protects the crew and can be extended to form a large cockpit tent.

There are various options available: eg cutter or fractional rig, daggerboards or centreboards.
There is room in each aft locker to fit a small diesel engine if desired, otherwise use two 4 stroke outboards (9.9hp Yamaha high thrust recommended)
