El barco

Northabout was designed by Caroff ­ Duflos Naval Architects, Paris France.

Built in 2000 by Jarlath Cunnane in a workshop in Mayo, with a lot of help from the team members and friends. The build time from start to finish was fifteen months, a remarkably fast time for a project of this size. Constructed entirely in aluminium, she is equipped with a lifting centreboard, which in its raised position reduces the draft to 1.4 metres, a very useful feature in the shallow arctic waters.
