She's only a 20' + 5' bowsprit but has great use of space and performs well in light air. Very solid feel, nice heeling movement and very traditional sailboat looks. However, with all the benefits of modern construction and it. Some of our members are cruising the med and channel at the moment.
Looks like a really neat little overnighter or weekender ... or, if you're into it, a week-long pocket cruiser.
We looked seriously at a Bristol Channel Cutter, but backed away from it as not having the room and comfort we were seeking in a long-term liveaboard.
Glad to know about these boats, tho - possibility when we swallow the anchor later on ....

There's a 1920's beauty of a pilot cutter now privately owned that parks up in the salterns alongside Lymington.
As pretty as.
Her owner poles or tows her out using his dinghy as she has no engine - but with gaff rig suspect he'd perform under sail.
Great to see modern (albeit smaller) versions still being built.
