The first ‘C-boat’, designed by Humphreys Yacht Design and built by Jason Carrington, has launched in Lymington and is currently undergoing sea trials in the Solent.

C-boat represents a design and build concept that both Jason and Humphreys Yacht Design plan to develop for power boats over a range of sizes. The C-boat concept utilises build materials and techniques more akin to high-tech racing yacht construction for which Jason Carrington has a world renowned reputation.

Pre-preg carbon fibre and nomex cores have been utilised resulting in an extremely light weight and structurally robust design with every aspect of the build receiving painstaking attention to detail. For more information please contact Humphreys Yacht Design.
