Whatís with Crowther cats?

It seems like they are markedly cheaper than other cats of the same vintage. I like their hull design better than most more modern cats. What are people’s general opinion of them?

Crowther was mainly a designer, problem may be you will not know who actually built it, apart from early Catanas.

Re: Whatís with Crowther cats?

Lock died 25 years ago so his boats are not as modern as new ones.

That said they sail well and are seaworthy. Loch was a real sailors designer with lots of miles in his own boats. You could go far far worse than a Loch Crowther cat.
