The Tiki 8M is an updated, composite fiberglass version of the popular ply-epoxy Tiki 26.
The V-eed hull shapes with special shaping along the fine keel give all the lateral resistance needed, so no complex dagger boards or projecting keels.
Available with the Wharram Wingsail rig, an improved Dutch high aspect ratio gaff rig. See drawing above.
Hull beam: 1.15m / 3.75 ft
