    I love the layout, a perfect set-up for living aboard and long-term cruising.  The boat would tempt me if I was in a position to be tempted.

    There was a 7 metre fully designed. Unfortunately, the global lockdown made it impossible to commence the build, but I hope that all is not yet lost.

    I've not looked closely at a 6 metre, but it does exist as a Freeship doodle.

    A 'Footprints' sized boat. This will be an excellent cruising yacht, taking all the great features of 'Fanshi', but with more space for a long term cruising boat for two or more people. Although I think the 8 meter version also fulfills that requirement on a bit more of a budget, and would I am sure be very capable of offshore cruising.

    I think the planned schooner rig would be a good choice as that large single sail on 'Footprints' was quite a handful, and one of the reasons why I decided to part with the boat.

    Was there a 6 meter version drawn up?.

    I'm in discussions with a JRA member about a larger version of SibLim, about the same size as Badger and Tystie, with the same capability. The LOA is a shade under 10m, the beam is 3.62m, the draught with a shallow cast iron fin keel (no bilgeboards) is 1.22m and the displacement is 6.66 tonnes fully laden. The rig is a standard PJR schooner, though a single sail is a possibility if the main berth were V singles instead of a central double. The motor is a Beta 20hp saildrive.
