The first of the Pahis, designed in 1979 after the building of a 35ft prototype, which successfully sailed the 1978 Round Britain Race. The PAHI shape has proven itself in rough weather conditions, in speed potential and ease of motion. At only 31' she is still capable of ocean voyages. Standing headroom is under a large raised hatch.
The original Pahi 31 rig is a Bermudan cutter, with low cut, anti-twist, loose footed mainsail, but now she is also available with the Wharram Wingsail Rig, giving more clear centre deck space as the mast is placed further forward.
