Simplicity is a cold-molded daysailer, designed by Joel White and built by Zimmerman Marine on Mobjack Bay in Virginia.

Simplicity has the counter stern. Her rig is non-standard with carbon fiber spars, an overlapping genoa, and a rigid vang. At one time she had a Hoyt jib boom but she now has a genoa on a through deck roller furler.
