Re: Bristol 30 up to 34

Ted Hood's Bristol 32 is one of the most beautiful production yachts in that size range ever built, IMHO...

I had the great pleasure of meeting the late John Atkisson, and getting the full tour of KESTREL, about 5 years ago in Beaufort, as he was wrapping up his 2-year Atlantic Circle... Like the Contessa 32, a rather small interior, but an absolutely wonderful boat overall...

His survived a collison with a large fishing vessel enroute to Ireland, with relatively minimal damage... Tough little boat...

Good blog, well worth a look:
