The Shaw 12 is a similar concept to the Shaw 11, with greater cabin space and a fully enclosed head and separate main cabin.
It is a versatile boat, set up for performance racing either short-handed or fully crewed in harbour and coastal racing. It is also offshore capable, with the capacity to sleep a full crew. The design intention is to maximise the performance potential of a 12 metre monohull yacht with a usable interior.
Construction is in carbon over foam and Nomex core, with a carbon rig. It has a hydraulic canting keel system and an inboard engine.
Blink is super fast and super comfortable, perfect for those dream races like the Transpac or Carribean 600.
Powerful sail plan with a high stability, canting keel with twin dagger boards and twin rudders.
