At 7.15am arriving on site to view this Wanderer not only felt like the wrong time of day but felt like walking back in time! Every aspect of this build has been completed to the highest standard, using the best materials & traditional workmanship. Whilst its not finished, the really hard work has been done & beautiful as she is, is now a blank canvas for the right person to add the really interesting bits!
The design follows the original plans of Laurent Giles & the legendary Hiscock's 8-tonner that completed its circumnavigation in the 1950's & once completed this bespoke Bluewater cruiser could be fulfilling those enviable voyages with its new owner.
UPDATE. Image of the rough-hewn rudder added.
