Jérôme Delaunay Designs


Mark Van Abbema
Jérôme Delaunay

I’have been involved in sailing and drawing sailboats since I was fourteen.

A few years ago I began to imagine the concept of a cheap small pocket cruiser suitable for rivers and inland waters. I was first influenced by the traditional barge boats of the Loire Valley.

It’s become the Scow 450, a 4 berths 15 feet “luxury” yacht, then I try to decline the concept in a smaller and even cheaper design, the scow 420.

I recently  experiment the tradionnal junk sail, and I try to improve it’s performance by a simple hinged batten system.
