The Tasman is a multi-chine plywood yacht designed for long distance sailing for 2 crew, which uses an egg-box frame system of plywood fore and aft girders slotted together with plywood bulkheads—once stringers have been fitted, the ply hull panels are then applied making construction quite simple.

There are 2 steel bilge plates which are housed in the bunk fronts and the junk mast is hinged in a tabernacle for easy lowering. Steering etc is set up for control from inside the yacht although there is a cockpit and outboard well.
