She has shallow draft, so with a beaching rudder and the centerboard raised, she can be easily sailed or rowed in shallow waters.

The Tirrik has a four-strake planking scheme, and comfortable side-benches.

She can be fitted with fore and aft decks which provide both stowage and buoyancy.

She has a brass shoe and half-oval to protect her stem and keel when being launched or pulled up on a beach.
