I am planning (but subject to dosh which is very tight at the moment) a new single hander.  Details are:

18 feet long

10 feet wide with T Foil rudders

9.5M mast (ish)

Approx 14.25sqm mainsail

Approx 16sqm Kite

All carbon construction, so target is approx 100KG

It will rate around the same as a Tornado once I've worked out how to sail it. 

It's going to be a on-off build by John at stealth marine and is currently called the "stealth 18s".  But this will probably change. 

Just need to find the cash first!

 

So if someone buy's my Inter 17, I'll just have to build it

Its not a new boat but my cherub Comfortably Numb should be hitting the water this season after many years underuse, a couple of years in a field and now a significant makeover.

Atum Bom should be ready in time for Sailboat too and belongs to an occasional forum user

Slightly strange question though, why do you ask?

What are the rule changes, will new hulls look significantly different?
