Designed in conjunction with Chris Bouzaid and the Waianiwa Group in the USA, the brief was for a fast, safe, comfortable ocean-going cruising yacht, with a classic but modern style in her aesthetics. Our intent has been to provide a boat readily sailed shorthanded handed and with a turn of performance that will allow her crew exhilarating sailing within a moderate displacement. This boat is ideally suited to participation in any of the various ocean cruising rallies that are currently enjoying increasing popularity.

The hull is designed with a fine ‘V’ shaped entry, a moderate beam and a well-balanced hull volume distribution allowing good load carrying capacity without affecting the performance characteristics of this very comfortable design.

The raised upper saloon and Navigation station allows guests and owners to enjoy the views and sight-lines while under sail or when in port; with formal saloon and entertaining further below. Two main sleeping Cabins with a third for extra guests and a well laid out galley ensure all the comforts are catered for.
