Designed by Alan Buchanan and built in 1975 by Johnson Sons and Jago Ltd, Leigh on Sea, Essex, this is a very sturdy long keel, centre cockpit motor sailer.
She has a fixed wheel shelter and an aft cabin with two berths and a heads compartment.
The original sail plan had a self tacking boomed jib. This was disposed of by the previous owner in favour of a furling genoa (Colnbrook Seareef). Since then the current owner has added a stainless steel bowsprit of approximately 1 metre, moving the forestay to the end. This allowed an inner forestay to be installed and the boomed reefable working jib to be reinstated as a cutter style staysail. This makes a powerful sail combination with much flexibility for differing conditions.
