Description: Franklin 29 - Semi Displacement Cruiser
The Franklin 29' is an example of Tasmanian Wooden Boat Centre heritage. Her classic looks and 'craftsman finish' sets her apart from the modern offerings that dominate today's market - providing a totally unique cruiser.

*This is a 'one of a kind' example of classic wooden boat building from The Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, Tasmania is to be sold 'As Is Where Is'.

The Franklin 29' is a hand crafted semi-displacement cruiser for the discerning owner. When artisans build a cruiser of proven design, using only the best hand selected Tasmanian timbers, you have all the makings of a priceless classic!

The Franklin 29' design has been inspired by the work of well known British designer Andrew Wolstenholme and his renown Bristol 27'. This proven design has been adapted and increased in size to suit Australian conditions. As a semi-displacement cruiser capable of 18 knots approx. (cruising at 14 knots approx. ), the owner will reach a picnic spot or harbour side coffee shop quickly.

This classic design embodies both traditional and modern construction techniques. For example, the hull is stripped planked in 19mm approx. Western Red Cedar edged glued with West System Epoxy and sheathed inside and out with 2 layers of 400grm double bias cloth fibreglass resin. At the same time as showcasing hand built, high quality construction techniques required when getting the best from Tasmanian timbers - timbers including Huon and Celery Top Pine with Western Australian Jarrah.

The construction and component inventory of the Franklin 29' illustrates the skilful selection of materials and equipment that makes this vessel so unique - a classic one-off vessel for an investor with a discerning eye to the future.

*Estimate to complete vessel to launch stage is approximatly, $30,000 not including launching or transport costs. (We recommend that prospective buyers should make own assessment).
