Rùm
is named after the Inner Hebridean Island and is the
first of the D&D 43 series. With an unusual reversed canoe
bow and a gaff rig, this pure daysailer looks like she was con-
ceived at the beginning of the last century. Underwater, how-
ever, is wholly different, with U-shaped hull sections, a deep
bulb fin keel and high-aspect rudder. The boat is built by
Jachtbouw Vels in composite. All the spars are varnished
Oregon pine.
Rùm
is designed for easy transport, to fit in a
container, and all the spars are shorter than the length of the
hull.
