Miilu 21’ Fisherman’s Launchis based on the drawings by H.I. Chapelle presented on Yachting magazine July 1938 and later on his book “Boatbuilding”. H.I. Chapelle was an American naval architect, and curator of maritime history at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. He recorded the lines of a power driven Hampden fishing boat built by C. Gomes at Sebaco, Maine, in 1925.

Fisherman’s Launch has narrow and easily driven lines. She is designed for a heavy, low power engine, which makes her a perfect boat for the electric propulsion with a big battery bank.  She is 21’ 4’’ in length over all, 5’ 11’’ beam and 2’ draft or 6,6 m, 1,8 m and 0,6 m in metric. Her long waterline gives maximum hull speed over 6 knots and with 5 kW AX5 electric motor by Oceanvolt and 7,6 kWh battery she has over 30 NM at just under 5 knots. 

Zen Sailstylerange includes two different size sailing dinghies ZEN 13’ and ZEN+ 18’. Zen range is a product of an Italian design studio Viareggio PGYD in collaboration with a shipyard Cantiere Navale Checci, Italy. 

ZEN is a wooden dinghy designed to sail simple, intuitive and fast way. She has modern and fast lines with ample form stability and a simple but effective sail plan. At her compact size 4,0 m x 1,55 m and 70 kg hull weight she is easy to maneuver even on the land. She has a 7,7 m2 main sail and in addition 4,8 m2 Code-zero for a down wind legs.

ZEN had an honor to be a nominee as a Dinghy of the Year at Yachts and Yachting Awards 2017. 

ZEN+ is a big sister for Zen. She is more like a beach boat than a dinghy. Her ample beam and slim lines makes her look bigger than she really is. The ballasted and pivoting keel completely disappears under the hull, allowing to beach without problems. The very large cockpit can comfortably accommodate up to 6 adults.
