Based on the 1960s 27' TANE design with more beam and higher freeboard, she can be built in foam/GRP sandwich or in plywood.
The Classic hull seaworthiness of the TANE encouraged many people to make ocean passages on her. We designed the TANENUI in 1973 to give these people on a low budget a sturdy, seaworthy basic boat with just that bit more internal space than the Spartan TANE.
The TANENUI is also available to build in plywood construction.
