An evocative range of Gaff Rigged cruising yachts of a traditional character which, whilst having low maintenace GRP hulls and decks, have plenty of hardwood trim and those details and fittings that add pleasure and pride of ownership to those of us who have a certain nostalgia for times gone by. All with full RCD classification.
A new boat developed by Blaxton Boats using the Kingfisher Hull. Deck moulding with coachroof extending to topsides in the style of Maurice Griffiths. Internal heads and galley mouldings.
A quintessentially English traditional cruising yacht designed by Angus Primrose. Produced (I think only 4-6) by Deep Water Yachts in Scotland this boat has never had the publicity it deserves. I would be interested in any information about the company or any of the boats built, I believe, in the early eighties. Gaff cutter with topsail.
Colin Archer is revered as the designer of Norwegian sailing lifeboat. John Leather wrote the definitive biography of Colin Archer and listed all his designs, commented on them and descibed the worldwide influence of them. Jim Spencer, tall ships skipper & Brightlingsea boatbuilder, asked John Leather to draw the lines of a smaller version. Hence the Kattegat. Jim designed the rig,deck and accomodation lay-out, and built four before being sadly taken from us way before his time. We offer Jim’s layout with the option of a heads compartment in lieu of navigation area. We are developing a GRP deck which will can be used with either Jim’s flush deck and doghouse, or with a larger cabin top.
