Beg-Meil is a traditional day-boat, gaff sloop rigged, just like many that existed in the old days. It is elegant and seaworthy with its half-deck and varnished wood coamings. A steel pivoting centreboard (40 kg) provides stability and performance. She could be used as a day boat, in the style of old dinghies. You can sail alone, or with a crew of 3 and even 4. She is planked over plywood bulkheads, either with wooden strips or marine plywood lapstrakes. The lapstrake or clinker-built version is easier to build.
Launching and recovering from a trailer is effortless.
Hull shapes are the same as Ilur. Ilur is a reference sail and oars boat, with more than 1000 plans already sold. The first Beg-Meil, named Pepito, was launched in Carnac in July 2005. She was built by the amateur builder Benoit Brabant using a kit supplied by Icarai. See our photo album. Many others are sailing or under construction.
