Broker's Comments

Her pedigree relates to the years 1790 to 1840. The bluff shapes of the 18th century had become finer for speed while the deep sections, firm beam and forefoot speak of grip in the water and stability beneath a large rig.
Notable features besides the clinker planking are the lute stern and barrel windlass. Her bold curves and buoyant hull above water become a fine entry, long keel and smooth run aft below. With 80 square foot of canvas per ton displacement; the combination will make her a powerful vessel. The beauty of the dipping lug rig is in its simplicity. Clean wind with no turbulence from the spars fills the fore sail, which sets as a hydrofoil, also providing a lifting motion over the sea. This is further enhanced by the mizzen which itself has a weak depressing effect, helping to keep the stern steady. A lugger whose rig is well tuned will be notable for her ‘close windedness’ and speed at a given waterline length.

She is now complete.

The owners have dropped the price considerable as plans for building a new boat are waiting.
