This is a lovely cruising boat of a traditional type attracting admiring comments wherever she goes. She is an excellent sea going boat and has safely taken me on a circumnavigation of Great Britain including the Outer Hebrides, St Kilda and the Orkneys, Channel Island, Northern Brittany and a complete Atlantic Circuit with the minimum of trouble. She is ideal for someone looking for a more traditional coastal cruiser or live aboard blue water cruiser. Using the wind vane steering system she will sail along unassisted on all points of sailing.
