General Details

ARTEMIS was designed and built as a Ketch and features a Kevlar hull and deck, balanced spade rudder, carbon fibre spars, and many sail combinations that combine for light, responsive sailing while her hydraulic furling gear and winches make her easy to handle. This boat was designed to be sailed by the owner without need for liveaboard crew.
