Sphinx is a sailing boat that where designed for family cruises. Built in Epoxy-Plywood, this 8meters long unit presents an interior arrangement adapted to a small family for several days cruises, as well as a generous cockpit volume. The boat can be delivered “ready to sail” or for self building construction since construction drawings are done to be CNC cut.


This sailing vessel was designed by our naval architecture design office following the request from a sailor who wanted to have the bvoat he has been thinking and dreaming about for so many years. The design brief of this sailor was hence very accurate and we could adapt on it an aesthetics as well as volumes adapted to the current market.

The boat is simple, easy to built and presents a safe concept, adapted to day cruises or longer ones.

This unit can be easily considered from a self building construction, since our design office did prepare all construction drawings.

The boat can also be delivered “ready to sail” : the construction is hence realised by shipyard LEBAILLY Fils based in Normandy (specialised in wood and aluminium vessel construction).
