Maia

Maia is a St Ives Sailing Punt. She was built by Jonny Nance in 2015 and is traditionally constructed with an oak keel and structural members and Douglas Fir clinker planking. She has no centre board or dagger board and relies on her hull shape and shallow full length keel to sail to windward. She has a standing lug rig on an unstayed mast. Her overall lines were developed from those taken off one of the last St Ives punts in 1975. She is 11 ft 6in long and draws 1 ft. She is owned by Scott and Tom Bowring and is kept on a running mooring in St Ives harbour.
