It is a common dream people have that they would like to get an old Cray boat and fit her out for cruising. Thinking the 40 or 50 year old boat only needs a few new cabinets and a coat of paint to embark on a cruise, turns out to be a very expensive time consuming exercise with the sweet dream turning into a nightmare of endless labour or an abandoned hulk laying in a yard.
We say build her up from new, the finished boat will be stronger, better and usually cost less!
In the early 1980s Tim Phillips got together with Ken Lacco to develop Tim’s idea of building a purpose built cruising boat. With inspiration from the Couta boats, Cray and Shark fishing boats of Bass Strait the lines for Jane were laid down.
Jane is specifically designed to give just the right compromise of sailing ability and performance under power. The balance of the hull form will ensure she is light on the steering, on all angles of heel and at different points of sail.
