After many requests for a bigger ECOnomy cruiser here she is.
For dimensions see the specifications. The lay out speaks for it self. This boat is a perfect boat for the whole family. The  boat is designed for extended coastal cruising.
Construction and design. The ECO 7.5 is a multi chine design. Like all our designs the boat is a (ply-)wood/glass /Epoxy construction. 
The headroom in the hulls is 1.92 till 1.82m where it counts.  The seat height around the table is at least 98 cm.

Big storage areas (inside and outside)  makes the boat a perfect boat for extended vacations.
The plans show two sail plans. The first a conventional fractional rig. The wishbone gaff rig has a roller reefing jack stay for fast main sail operation (see next page).  Engine choices, two outboard engines , each with about 5 HP or a single center mounted outboards.
