This Colin Archer derivative design is believed to have been built in Dusseldorf in 1979.
It has a canoe stern and is cutter rigged with twin backstays and roller furling genoa. A fully encapsulated lead long keel gives the vessel excellent directional stability.
In the same ownership since 1994 the interior has been completely refitted, lead ballast removed, cleaned then set in GRP to form solid bilges.
Set up for short handed and single handed sailing with effective self-steering and easy rig control, it is known to have crossed the Atlantic and the present owners have completed over 10000miles around Europe.
Cedar lined cabin with a solid fuel stove and good continuous ventilation make for cosy and dry living accommodation.
It can best be described as a heavy cruiser which offers surprising performance over long passages and high levels of security and comfort at sea.
