    Beautiful pictures of beautiful boats, but, yellow hulled 12 Meter? I think not. No 12 meter I ever saw, and I have seen a few, had a bowsprit, gaff, and overhanging boom.

    She's a 12. An old design, but a 12 Meter deisgned by Alfred Mylne. Note the 12 Meter Class goes back to 1906.

    Thanks Elf,

    Looking in my bookmarks for the complete database of all 12s ever built I find this:

    and even further beyond simply a gaff rigged sloop:

    And, for that matter, here's the link to the database:

    Look under the United Kingdom category and check out Javotte.

    This is the new 12 that was just built and launched right? I thought I read about it in Wooden Boat.

    Yep. She is a beauty except for the banana color.

    It's kind of a 'Fighting Lady Tuna Terror" yellow, isn't it?
