Built by the Fairmile Construction Company Ltd. at Berwick on Tweed in 1962, originally named Tanit. The hull "is based on the highly successful 'Fair Isle' trawler hull, this attractive vessel is designed to appeal to the deep-sea cruising owner'. The interior is a bit dark, but otherwise is well-laid out for six plus two crew. Powered by twin Gardner 4SA diesels, she cruises at a stately nine knots.

LOA - 73 ft
BOA - 19 ft 5 in
d - 10 ft 4 in

She is currently for sale for US$780,000

Not the best example of the class remaining, that being said, having met a guy who came up single handed in one through France to the UK, it has always been one of those "small ships", that if i even did the lottery, let alone win it, would be on a short list; they had an excellent reputation as a sea boat.

Slightly bigger, but one i am more familiar with...

OK, granted, there's no sharp corners at the stern...but those frilly pillow cases have to go.

I get a headache just looking at photos of that room. Hard to imagine actually trying to sleep in it.

Change the linens to a dark navy blue and I'd be happy with it.

It would look just fine with the lights out.

John WelsfordYes, but I'd have to feel my way around in the dark.
