Kittiwake Boats pride themselves on providing original, hand-built quality craft.
Their traditional lines belie a clever and wholly appropriate matching of modern and traditional materials.
Gaff rigged for authenticity - boats from this workshop are already taking their place at traditional rallies throughout Europe.
The Kittiwake range of dayboats are made from composite materials, having a GRP/Fibreglass clinker hull but with a lovely hardwood fit out.
The traditional sailplan is gaff rigged, and with a mizzen and two headsails is known as a Gaff yawl cutter, (Falmouth quay punt).
These boats ranging from 14ft/4.5mtrs to 16ft/5.3mtrs are performance centreboard sailboats, with good speed and manoeverability, as well as being stable, fully recoverable and very safe.
They can also be rowed, and motored by outboard engine. They are trailersailers,easily rigged and sailed singlehandedly, sleep on board or just daysail,and keep at home, versality is the name of the game.
