Camas Moon

In Festival Boats 2022, Festival Boats 2023

Camas Moon is the first boat built to Tad Roberts’ new CoPogy 18 design. She is 18’ LOD, 24’ LOA, 6’6” beam, and 9” draft. She is rigged as a gaff yawl, with an off-center pivoting centerboard, and has a 6 HP outboard motor in a well. Designed as a trailerable mini-motorsailer for one or two people, she will be equally at home motoring all day in the calms or sailing when the wind serves. Construction is stitch-and-glue around structural ply bulkheads, hull and deck is marine ply, with Douglas Fir for most other elements, including the spars. Extensive watertight storage compartments make the boat unsinkable. Construction began not long after the start of the pandemic and was completed in June 2022.
