This yacht was the first of the class built in 1966 and was displayed at that years London Boat Show where she won the Boat of the Show prize.
The yacht has many features typical of Laurent Giles and is effectively a small version of his much larger Dorus Mhor class. She has a conventional long keel, a wonderful flare to the bow with that slight chine worked in to the sheer strake, a positive sheer and a long over-hanging transom stern, the cut-off counter also found in some of his rule-cheater race yacht designs. Add a generous beam which gives so much space on deck and volume in the cabin and we have a design which has endured till very recent times.
The sheltered midships helm position, all on main deck level with no step down into a cock-pit is a huge advantage with the open-backed dog-house protected by the aft cabin coach-roof.
The sloop rig carries a very effective sail area and although no racing yacht she is far from being a motor sailer.
The accommodation gives her two en suite sleeping cabins with a good-sized midships saloon. The galley is sited down the stbd side with a dinette arrangement opposite which can be converted to a double berth.
This is the perfect arrangement for a family cruising yacht or for a couple with occasional guests.
She is not so big that she is expensive to keep or a handful to sail but she does give the comfort in harbour and at sea which is usually only found in a larger yacht.
