The Coaster is a long weekender for four people, the cabin gives two full length berths, cooking and toilet facilities, plus plenty of usable storage space.
With a spray hood and boat tent, another two berths can be provided. A 6-8 hp outboard motor is recommended to supplement the 15.22 sq mtrs (164 sq ft) of sail.
The centre plate is set in an integral trunk and is operated by a rotary winch from the cockpit. The outboard sits in a well and can be lifted clear of the water when not in use.
As with the Longboat, the Coaster can be trailed or left on a mooring as you wish.
