Designed by David Hillyard and built in Littlehampton in 1933 this classic 8 Tonner is constructed of oak frames with pitch pine planking above the water line and larch below.
Decking is marine ply and pitch pine planking. Expertly rebuilt and modified by Arthur Miln of Bute in the late 1970's she now carries a centre cockpit and stern cabin and a long cast iron keel. She is a Bermudan Ketch with beautiful tan sails.
In 2003 the standing rigging was replaced in stainless steel and she was fitted with a taller alloy mast (Proctor), making the rig extremely robust.
New NorthSails genoa, main and mizzen (all in tan) along with headsail roller reefing completed the rig. She was also fitted with a new Beta BV1505 4 cylinder 37.5 bhp diesel engine giving superb reliability and economy. She cruises effortlessly at 4.5-5 knots and has a maximum speed around 6.5 knots.
A recent spray hood and tonneau cover for the cockpit by Owen Sails provide good weather protection.
