    1961 Sterling long keel sloop designed by Kim Holman. Sterlet is a lovely example of the Sterling Class, built by J W Uphams of Brixham, a wooden version of a Twister. A comprehensive programme of improvement and refit has been undertaken and almost certainly she is now one of the best boats in the class. All work has been carried out by Dolphin Quay boatyard of Emsworth and Birdham. Rigged for single handed sailing but has a cockpit which will happily accommodate at least four adults. Five berths in two cabins and a quarter berth. Sterlet has been sailed extensively by the current owner both in the Solent and along the South Coast.
