Laure – an 18′ Version of the Donzi Deep V sweet 16 Inboard – Simon Hawksley

‘Laure’ is an 18’ version of the Donzi Sweet 16 inspired Deep V 16 Inboard. The plans are from Classic Wooden Boat Plans and were previously used by Brian Reford when building Bunduki. The hull is ply on Douglas fir frames – two layers of 9ml marine ply on flat surfaces, 3 layers of 6ml ply on curved surfaces.  The deck is Sapele and spruce on a ply sub-deck.

The boat has been fitted with a petrol 5.7 litre MerCruiser V8 Sterndrive engine.
