She is equipped with an amp-hour meter to measure battery draw, as well as a 50″ x 15″ solar panel to keep the batteries topped off when the boat is on a mooring.

The sailing performance is still great with the 124 square feet of sail area set on a fractional sloop rig. If you are looking for a little more performance off the wind, an optional removable carbon fiber bowsprit is available to set a 160 square foot asymmetrical spinnaker. Performance and ease of use have always been the hallmark of the Nancy’s China and with the additions to the DC we have only improved a wonderful boat. — Sam Devlin

The Nancy’s China DC is available in   study and construction plans .

  1. Nancy’s China DC 15

    Nancy’s China DC 15. In this new version of our old favorite, Nancy’s China goes topless, and if you take a closer look at the rudder you will see her auxiliary power plant. We have added an electric motor. The motor is a 43 pound thrust electric, powered by two 8D deep-cycle 12 volt DC batteries. With three forward and three reverse speeds ...
