Devon Yawl

Difficulty: 2 star rating intermediate

The Devon Yawl is a boat with a pedigree. The design has evolved over two hundred years from the inshore fishing boats of the south Devon coast and one of England’s oldest racing classes; the Salcombe Yawl. The Devon Yawl is a boat that is fun to own and fun to sail. As an all-weather racer, the boat is fast and responsive, satisfying for both the novice and the expert. She can be single-handed and yet is roomy enough for all the family to enjoy. The weight of the centreplate and ballast contribute to her inherent stability, which coupled with a large sail area gives her an excellent performance. She is truly a performance daysailer. The Devon Dayboat is a derivative with a cuddy based on the same hull and sail plan as the Devon Yawl. Author: Edward Timberlake
