Stepping aboard this boat and looking around the wide Douglas Fir deck she looked on first glances like an extremely well undertaken restoration of an old wooden classic fitted with traditional bronze winches and hatches and varnished teak deck table with seating for 8. Progressing into the wheelhouse and down the companionway into the luxurious interior the vessel began to reveal her true nature. This is a bespoke yacht built to the current owner’s demanding specifications and commissioned in 2013 as a luxurious fast blue-water cruiser that could be sailed by him alone or with one additional crew. The design is based on a 1895 St Malo Pilot Cutter, with her lines extended to create a fast fine entry shape and to give a sleek appearance despite her beam of 19 foot. The vessel was designed by the legendary French designer Francoise Lamcard in 1891 and built by the Cornish Boatyard, Gaffers and Luggers in Mylor, she is an extremely strong GPR construction built up with 14 layers of cloth either side of the keel and with 28 layers over the keel. Whilst retaining her traditional looks the gaff ketch rig uses some modern materials and equipment to make the boat more manageable by a short-handed crew. Her main engine is a Gardner 6LXB which is situated in an engine room that has ample space to undertake all normal maintenance tasks. The theme of accessibility to systems and machinery continues through-out the boat; the owner has carefully considered this aspect and all the main plant and machinery is easily accessible. The interior provides luxurious accommodation for the owner and guests and comprises fore and aft bedroom suites, a separate saloon with fireplace and central galley/dining area with fully fitted kitchen. There are four additional berths for crew or friends. The deck is spacious and provides storage for a rigid tender and a seating area just aft of the wheelhouse. And one more thing, underneath a large lazarette hatch, just behind the emergency steering tiller, there is a Jacuzzi with the usual lights and jets etc. This unique yacht can only really be appreciated through viewing her first-hand.
