Redwing 40 was designed for a client who wanted a larger version of the successful REDWING series to cruise the intracoastal waterways. She is designed for modest power including an outboard or inboard. Speed is a relaxing 8 to 10 knots depending on power selected. A sound isolated engine will provide hours of silent cruising. She will be economical to power and cruise long distances on very little fuel. She has accommodations for four or more in separate cabins.
Cruising will be a joy as you cruise quietly, enjoying the sights and sounds along the waterways. Glue and screw construction is plywood and epoxy over straight frames and bulkheads. The hull will go together quickly and finish and trim will take the most time depending on the level of finish desired by the owner. Plans include: materials, lines, offsets, set-up, construction, and arrangement.
Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power or sails) is $4 to $6 per pound. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
