Project Description

Biblo is Mural Yachts take on the traditional lobster design. Unlike most boats of her size she was designed with the intention of long range cruising and greater autonomy. Whilst many recreational vessels of her size are day cruisers Biblo can be enjoyed for a weekend without needing to head back to the marina.

Biblo’s hull design was based upon a traditional Downeast semi-displacement hull form. This design leads to a very sea-kindly, safe and inherently stable boat. The swimming platform is integrated to the hull to extend her waterline and increase hull efficiency. The long keel and skeg are very useful in giving the boat excellent directional stability and resisting rolling motions. This results in a more comfortable and shorter ride to get to your destination.

Biblo is packed with all the comforts of a much larger yacht and much more equipment then you would expect to find on a vessel of this size. The open aft deck gives the feeling of much larger yacht. This area can be closed using the awning and side attachments for providing shade or to escape from bad weather. There is a comfortable seating on the starboard side where casual drinks and food can be enjoyed. Under the hard top is another seating area, the helm plus a kitchenette with electric stove and fridge. Forward of the steps is an air conditioned single cabin with a V-berth and bathroom with electric toilet.

Biblo was finished using marine paint system on the exterior and interior with no veneer and varnish resulting in very easy and low cost maintenance.
