Ozona Pram Plans

Ozona Pram Plans

Prams are a traditional design concept in which the bow of the boat is a flat panel instead of a point, which in turn allows a wide beam forward. Imagine your regular rowing skiff with the pointy end chopped off. You lose 15-20% of overall length but very little carrying-capacity: This is the beauty of prams and the reason why sailors have favored them as yacht-tenders for centuries.

We designed the Ozona Pram to achieve the optimum combination of rowing, sailing and motoring performance. She was designed with an eye for detail using the background that only a trained designer can bring to the table, and that means the difference between a floating soapbox and a real vessel. Remember the last time you rowed or sailed a dinghy? Wasn’t the anchor and rode tangled up in an ungodly mess at the bottom? What about your kid’s fishing rod? The Ozona Pram comes standard with integrated rod holders and an actual anchor well.

What about safety? With the flotation chambers filled with foam, she is unsinkable, period. Or put in access holes and leave the cavities empty for an awesome storage space; safe and dry!

She sails like a charm, points way up and will move before leaves do. Sail up to places that big boats only dream of, you’ll need just about 6 inches of water.

She sails particularly well in light air. Look at the photo below: There is hardly a ripple yet the Pram is making a decent wake. Heeled this way, the wetted surface is reduced considerably.
