Vela is a steel Seahawk 31, buitl(1973) by Jachtbouw Noord - Warns - Stavoren ZW-Friesland - NL. A design of J.B. Hoogland, well known for the 'Suncoast' and 'Tielsa' designs.

Beside trips on the North Sea to England, France and the Netherlands, 'Vela' has also safely sailed us to Schotland, Norway and Turkye.

Origineel bouwplan

 

Aesthetics of her design clearly reflect the yachtbuilding priorities of the mid seventies: to build an affordable all-round cruising yacht, shallow drafted with affordable maintenance costs and good windward sailing capabilities.
