Catalogue excerpts

Clinker Ilur built by Icarai Ilur was designed after Aber, in order to get a larger boat, able to family day sailing. It can be used for fishing and even coastal cruising! Two Ilur have been to He of Sein, at the extreme West of France, one of the worst place to go with tremendous tides and the worst sea conditions. However, do not consider this as an invitation to go there ! Length was increased by 20 cm only, but Ilur is mostly wider and higher, with a generous freeboard. This makes a very different boat, with good seakeeping ability, but still in the "sail and oar" spirit. Its superior quality makes Ilur my best-seller plan (with nearly a thousand copies sold). It has been built in many places, from the very heart of Alps, The light clinker version is easy to row Ilur is built with a strip planked or a plywood clinker hull. In both cases, Ilur is very close to a traditional construction (steam bent or laminated frames, timber sheerstrakes, seat risers...) and this gives the boat a high Ilur is now fitted with a pivoting centreboard. The case is lowered and is not cumbersome. The oars may be stowed either above or under floorboards in order to free space when under sail. Ilur is a very friendly boat able to A lot of space, thanks to the lowered centreboard case Three rig options are offered. The standing lug sail (misainier in French) is the most popular. It is simple and efficient (but be careful not to haul taut the sheet). The sail is tacked between mast and stem et remains always on the same side of mast. When tacking, the helmsman has just to take the sheet from one thumb cleat to the other side. There is no boom and this is comfortable for fishing or family sailing. It is recommended to have a pole when Well tuned, this strip planked Ilur has good windward ability. The lug sloop (next page), is closer to modern rigs, with a mainsail and a jib, and gives improved performances. It is possible to shift the mast forward and have to boat rigged as a balanced lug with a moderate size sail. This is useful for single-handed sailing or is case of strong wind.

The last option is the balanced lug, the sail being fitted with a boom. This rig is a good choice for river as well as single-handed sailing as there is no need to use a pole. It is also more powerful than the standing lug. A boat for the home builder Ilur is not an "instant boat" you can built within a few week-ends. The aim of the designer was to have an exquisite traditional boat which maybe built by any people able to make something with their hands. Plan package is very complete and detailed. Dimensioned drawings for stations, stem and transom profile (including bevels) allow construction...
