First of the breed, the jaunty Lugger has established popularity in countries throughout the world. There is ample room in the uncluttered cockpit for five, yet the handy rig is so well thought-out that just one person can handle her with ease.
Rigs: Gybing is no worry because the sails are loosefooted–which also means they can be furled to the masts, leaving the cockpit free for fishing or picnicking in some delightful backwater. Masts can be stepped or unstepped in minutes by just one person. With the easy-to-handle rigging you can be sailing–or trailing–within minutes of arrival at, or departure from, the water.
Engine: The ouboard is mounted in a protected well (4-6 h.p. is recommended for best performance) and can be stowed securely in the large, lockable compartment aft.
Nothing overlooked: The safety-first Lugger has concealed foam buoyancy, ample freeboard and a lifting tiller and rudder that ships through a trunk to keep clear of the motor well–everything has been carefully designed to produce and unrivalled family boat.
Options: To make life simpler for sailing in very shallow waters a special “kick-up” rudder is available. Other options are an easily-rigged, proofed canvas camping tent, with clear plastic windows, which stows under the side benches when not in use, a sun awning and a special larger mainsail for areas of predominantly light winds.
