As far as my build experience goes this is my first build but I am a fairly accomplished tradesman and carpenter.

From what I see, there are lots of options, but 11-14 feet is kind of small for 2-3 adults - you are really looking around 15-16 (or more) feet size wise. One thought worth considering is that in our current fiscal nightmare conditions, it may be a LOT cheaper to buy a boat, sail a lot sooner and THEN make a decision on what you want to build with a season or two under your belt. Building a 14-16 foot boat is going to cost 4-7000 dollars (ready on the water) at the end of the day, not including your labor. Not to toss a chain in the works, here, but it may be fairly difficult to get a nice design that comes with fully cuttable CAD files.
Maybe a deal could be worked-out for you to cut panels for any future local boats of that type and you send the designer the agreed upon design fee? Find a collection of boats that look to be just right for your interests, send out some query letters to the designers and pitch them with an idea that works nicely for them as well as yourself. In my daily world I've had to decide long ago to stand firmly on the principle that the protection of my intellectual property by technical means is far less effective long term than opening my work to criticism and improvement by an audience of my peers.
Three adult people in a 13 foot sail boat is uncomfortable at best and unsafe in many circumstances. Building an orphan design (one without a large following or fleet) is for people that just don't care about the expense, and are willing to give up the social side of sailing in a group.

I really think you would be better off buying a used boat for now and building a project like a canoe or kayak to learn the skills. I know I could put a minimalist boat together for very little (under $2000), but not one I would sail on Lake Huron outside of a harbor breakwater. I'm trying to give you the chance to recognize that a full on build effort right now may end up with a disappointing result, failure to meet your real needs and a lot of expense and effort.
I think the original poster would be far better served building this type of boat than a 13' dinghy. Good news is the build is fast and simple, with little real world effort difference from what he's already thinking about. Location: Australia Perhaps the i550 is too much but there would be options to tone it down a little if you wanted something a little less lively. I know nothing about the Cal 21 but thats a pretty old boat (I assume fiberglass) to be going coastal offshore in.

I have definitly thought about the purchase side of it and have actually seen some nice boats for $2000-2500. All kinds of stuff is possible, especially in a strange economic environment, such as the one we have running up our backsides right now. My initial thought is I would want a bit more sail area but I could rig it for a spinikar if I so desired (which I do). A smaller rig is the obvious solution though I guess you could go with a little more ballast too. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
