PEGGY BAWN’s 2 year restoration, widely regarded as exceptionally authentic, is recognised in the almost unrivalled “Coefficient of Authenticity” in her CIM rating. Cruised and raced in the seven years following, she is noted for her perfect balance and good manners. In 20 knots under finger tip control, her toe rail kisses the water, and in up to 17 knots, a flutter in her jack yard topsail marks her optimum groove. Moreover easily rigged and sailed by two, this perfect Victorian cruiser racer offers a competent owner the opportunity to step back in time, into the shoes of her illustrious designer, who created her at the very peak of his career - the year after designing BRITANNIA for the Prince of Wales. Apart from her delightful clipper bow, her hull shape displays her as a miniature “Britannia”.

At classic regattas she has shone, not just in racing performance, but also as the “most beautiful”, “oldest”, or “most authentic” example of the genius of the Golden Age of Yacht Design. Even her hydrostatic parameters conform to the ideals later defined by Olin Stephens.

She is ready to provide another century and more of sailing bliss to new owners. With her come 10 free copies of Martin Black’s superb biography of G L Watson, helping to define her unique place in yachting history. Meanwhile her well specified and equipped Harbeck trailer provides for great versatility in getting to race venues and for storage. This trailer is such an important aspect of the versatility of this yacht that we detail a section to it below.
