JUST REDUCED - The YACHTING MONTHLY 3-Tonner 20ft is an able little cruiser capable of making sea passages under normal conditions, and she is almost ideal for two. Although designed as a centerboard boat this one is a fin keel. Very careful thought has gone into this design, almost every detail from the design of the hull and its form of construction has been subjected to careful scrutiny and discussion. The hull form was designed to make planking by normal methods as simple and as little wasteful of timber as possible, hence the nicely rounded sections and total absence of reverse curve to the garboards. The keel and dead woods are built up so as to avoid the need for any large baulks of timber. The exterior has been finished to a high standard, the refurbishment of the interior requires finishing.

It has been said by those who have searched yacht yards in vain that the only way to get your dream-ship is to build her. But some builders are keen to try their hand at a good round bilge boat with steamed and bent frames and normal planking. This design was specially prepared by Alan H Buchanan. Owned by the current owner for the last 13 years.
