Bert van Baar tells me that the prototype of his Hanze Yawl design drew a lot of praise at the Beale Park  Boat Show. The images above were produced using the Rhino modelling software.

Plans for the ply and epoxy boat are for sale for €199, and I gather a plan is being hatched to a kit to build the boat available by the end of the year.

Another piece of news is that in February 2012 Bert plans to run another boat building course in which the project will be to build another Hanze Yawl – he’s offering a discount of 10 per cent off the €825 cost to any British student.

See an earlier post on this boat including photos of the prototype Hanze Yawl here.

These dreamy shots taken by Gemma Toussaint come from the Iain’s Clan Weekend, a meeting for builders and users of Iain Oughtred’s boats that organised earlier this month by Bert Van Baar of the De Bootbouwschool at Uitgeest, Holland.

That black double-ender is a aluminium Tirrik built by Jachtwerf de Zeeg.

PS – While we’re on the subject of Oughtred boats, a few days ago Man on the River Giacomo de Stefano and pals made it across the Channel in their Oughtred Ness Yawl and made a nice short film about it.
