During the current ownership she had a major refit including removing the keel, strengthening the hull and putting in a new engine. Pitch Pine hull on oak timbers, teak over ply deck. BMC 4cyl diesel. 4 berths with separate heads and galley. An eye catching yacht very well suited for UK cruising. NEW VIDEO

Custom designed gaff cutter


Built in 2003, the concept was for a classic looking yacht with modern performance. The underwater lines of the Mini Transat were used to develop a very slippy and responsive hull yet with the looks and feel of a traditional gaff cutter. Traditionally built in larch on oak with all varnished teak coamings, solid yacht laid 1/4 sawn larch deck. Basic interior with 2 berths. Beta Marine 14hp diesel gives 7 knots. Fin type keel with a lead bulb can be retracted to reduce draft to less than 2', telescopic rudder to match. Will beat anything in light airs. Recent survey has highlighted some areas of work so price has been reduced for a quick sale
