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)
This Meander was built in France, but is now sailing in Morocco
A modified Meander is sailing round the world. Built in the late 1980's in British Columbia it arrived in the Caribbean in July 2016. see more here http://maiaaboard.blogspot.com/
