It would be safe to call the Marsh Wren an evolutionary design in the Devlin catalog. She’s a refined synthesis of a long history of sailboat design in a form that is small enough for convenience and large enough for an entire family as a daysailer. In cabin form, she’s capable of longer cruises. In either form, the Marsh Wren is a well balanced and efficient sailboat, light on the helm and easy to handle alone.
The Marsh Wren is the response to a body of customer feedback. Read about it in Sam’s design notes.
The Marsh Wren is available in study and construction plans.
