New Penny

In Festival Boats 2022

Built to the Devlin Marsh Wren design “New Penny” was a many year long building project, started at Woodenboat School in Brooklin, Maine and then carrying on a the Devlin Yard in Olympia. She is a daysailer very much like a larger H-12.5 and capable of handling two couples for a sail without getting in each others way. She is gaff rigged and uses an electric outboard for any auxillary power to get into and out of a slip. She sails like a nicely mannered witch and has a very balanced and light helm. Devlin named her “New Penny” keeping in mind that she is ‘Bright and Shiny as a New Penny’
