The Bezier 28 is a classic style fractional rigged daysailer with gracious line designed to appeal to "Radius Chine" builders.

Designed to the same hull plating configeration use by "Radius Chine" designs, which places a large single radius between two developable surfaces to emulate a true round hull shape.

While the Bezier 28 was designed using the "Bezier Curve" design and construction method which places a True Round surface between upper and lower developable surface. Using "Bezier Curve" results is a design that significantly reveals more true round surface curvature above the waterline, while extensively reducing the slab sided look of a "Radius Chine" hull.

Frame construction is conventional for a metal hull with closely spaced longitudinals supported by angle iron transverse frames. This framing system assures a fair hull, and a strong one, yet is within the ability of a competent amateur builder.

The Metal Boat Plans for the Bezier 28 detail an underbody with a Full keel for good directional stability. A tall mashead rig is well suited to day sailing.
