Micro Petrel

Micro Petrel CartopThe Micro Petrel is a great 8′ yacht tender. As the name implies, it is the little sister to the Lit’l Petrel. She is the design response to the need for a small, rugged, lightweight yacht tender, but she can be used in any situation that needs a small boat with the ability to carry a variety of loads while maintaining its balance and performance. She is another Devlin easy-to-build option, in terms of both space and cost. Her size makes her easy to handle, store, and transport. She makes a great cartopper.

Read the story of the Micro Petrel in Sam’s design notes.

Julian Swindell sent us a great set of build photos.

The Micro Petrel is available in study and full construction plans and as CNC cut kit.

One thought on “Micro Petrel

  1. Question. The Micro Petrel and Polliwog have same dry hull weights, but drastic different useful loads. Is this correct and why?
