It’s always a pleasure to see one of our favourite models underway and the photos show the classic lines of a Secret 20 gaff cutter shaping up. This is one of our comprehensive interlocking kits, delivered in July to our customer in South East Queensland.
. . . . The keel with its integral lead ballast was glassed, faired and primed prior to delivery so that the owner was able to skip some tedious sanding and get on with some proper ship building – all part of the service! Visit our Secret 20 page to see the finished boats.
Sailing Cargo Ship
11 July 2018
There’s a great deal to be said for a clean sheet of paper. We used lots of them to design our new sailing cargo ship. The brief we set ourselves was simple: build a small cargo ship with zero emissions capable of loading 2 containers or 50 pallets or in fact anything else that could fit.
. . . . We called the new ship Electric Clipper and for it to succeed every single aspect of its construction and operation had to be super efficient. It’s quick to load, quick on the water and marvellously cost effective — we’re in the business of simple solutions. From the Barbados to the Baltic and Brisbane to Brunei, there’s cargoes to shift! The world needs sailing cargo ships again — urgently. Here’s one that works. Go to our dedicated website Go Sail Cargo
