Hull type: The hull for the Breizh Tiger was taken from the previously built Breizh Spirit III. The Breizh Spirit III was fabricated out of closed cell foam and marine grade plywood as longitudinal and transverse bulkheads. The only major changes to the hull shape is the addition of foam blocks on the transom which provide the extra buoyancy needed to counteract the weight of the batteries and also serve to protect the rudders. The hull was also strengthened with several layers of fibreglass filled with epoxy.
Sail Type: Classic sloop rig with a single sheet.
