She's a Mark Ellis design, so a good pedigree there. There were a couple of layouts, the original quite different with no V berth but a forward settee, midships head and an aft berth/cabin that would be a reasonable couples' boat. I believe the second version was more traditional, but few may have been made.

A salty looking cruiser with a spacious deep cockpit that's probably a bit quicker than she looks. We considered one but opted for something a bit bigger with two real doubles, among other things.
