Lady Kate is a pretty small Classic Clinker Cutter, an open day sailing boat.
She is ideal for single-handed sailing in the river and at sea & for motoring to bays and beaches for picnics with the family. She is an excellent sea boat with a good turn of speed under sail or power.
Lady Kate has been maintained for the last five years to a high standard by Blackness Marine on the River Dart.
