Cheers!

What are they like to sail? - Amazing. Light, responsive and very fast. We've informally raced a lot of similar sized boats on our travels and only a 38 foot tri has come close (an exciting 15+ knot reach into an anchorage in the Balearics) to matching us. My favourite race was with a 45-50 foot and very shiny monohull. We edged past them in light conditions as they put on every scrap of sail they had and even dangled the crew; meanwhile my wife was reading on the nets and I was landing a tuna.

We have 3 double berths, one of which is very large. Each has it's own cabin with hanging lockers and a worktop. Our galley is pretty generous too and in the saloon we can seat 6 easily and 8 at a push.

Re: Shuttleworth Cat Launched!

10,000 miles, 17 countries, an ocean and three intense years of sailing later and we're very, very reluctantly putting our Shuttleworth 31 up for sale. It's going to be hard but a new opportunity looms that can't be missed...

The boat is listed here:

and we've posted lots of photographs and full details on our website:
