La Pauline, Dahouet lugger

Hull length: 9.48 m
Breadth: 3.45 m
Displacement : 11.5 t
Sail area: 95 m²

Dahouet is a small harbour in Saint Brieuc bay, on the northern coast of Brittany. It was very active in the past, mainly for coastal trade and Newfoundland fishing.
In 1989 people from there decided to build a replica of a fishing lugger of the beginning of the 20th century. The original La Pauline was built in Paimpol in 1901 and was known as a fast and seaworthy boat.
Only pictures of the original boat were available and the line and sail plans were drawn mainly from that.

The new Pauline was built by Yvon Clochet, now retired, near Tréguier.
