Based on the 1960s 27' TANE design with more beam and higher freeboard, she can be built in plywood or in foam/GRP sandwich.
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.
By popular demand, we later drew her for building in the standard Classic plywood construction.
