It is hard to disagree with Ed Burnett’s aim to design yachts of distinction that would give their owners many years of pleasure. We would go further and flag him as one of very few designers of the modern era who could draw a long keel yacht to match Laurent Giles for proportion, style, and ability.
It is hard to disagree with Ed Burnett’s aim to design yachts of distinction that would give their owners many years of pleasure. We would go further and flag him as one of very few designers of the modern era who could draw a long keel yacht to match Laurent Giles for proportion, style, and ability. As with most Ed Burnett designs, DAPHNE DU CAP was conceived to give pleasure both in the building and in use: for blue water family sailing adventures and cruising in a boat that applies great volume to the popular ZINNIA type - even more than in the first to do that, IVY GREEN - without becoming a burden to handle for her commissioning owners and their young family. DAPHNE is now very well proven, with two South to North Atlantic passages, an east to west North Atlantic crossing, and thousands of cruising sea miles effortlessly accomplished. And, for European Ed Burnett fans, she is no longer just that faraway dream boat in the lovingly compiled recently published review of Ed’s work by his parents. DAPHNE DU CAP is now based in South West Ireland: impressively equipped and maintained; ready to explore and enchant.Brokers Comments

After numerous long distant discussions with Ed Burnett, sv DAPHNE DU CAP (known to us as DAPHNE) was commissioned in late 2003. Building started in May 2004 and by August 2006, after three yard visits by Ed, we launched Daphne in Simon’s Town, South Africa.The basic brief to Ed was as follows:Inspiration from the ZINNIA & IVY GREEN designs, but larger. The work boat/ pilot cutter influence for sea worthiness, ease of handling with minimal crew and ability to stand off, heave-to in a blow.- LOD: 38 ft /- LWL: 33ft- Displacement: 13 tonnes- Draft: 6’Sail area of dimensions providing a boat that is gutsy, but not overly powerful or difficult for two to handle.- Gaff cutter configuration- Deck to provide good working space.- Consideration to be given to sheltering in the cockpit with a doghouse and dodger system- Comfort below, essential for long term cruising for two adults & two children- Standing rigging of bronze fixtures and stainless wire- Sails of Oceanus cloth- Transom hung rudder & tiller steeringAnd this is more or less exactly what Ed gave us. Ed made sure we understood the choice of rig. His very first question was, “why a gaff rig?” Not having much experience with gaffers, it was a legitimate question and there was no easy answer. We knew that sail handling would be more demanding than what we were used to, and that the large boom could be a handful in any large seaway, but we were keen to have more options at hand while cruising. There had been times while sailing long distance with various Bermudan rigs, with the relative ease & simplicity of the rig, that we felt we needed more options and we were up for a new challenge. Most importantly, we believed that the type of displacement vessel we were after lent itself to gaff rig and that the variety of options that gaff sail handling offered us were of benefit to a cruising vessel. It was what we wanted and that seemed good enough for Ed.Composite wood construction is typical of gaffers from Ed’s design board. She has ring frames and keelson laminated in Sapele, hull strip planked in Douglas Fir and covered with biaxial cloth and epoxy laminate. Her decks and super structure are epoxy glassed marine ply; the decks overlaid in 16mm teak. Her interior is panelled in V-grooved marine ply and trimmed with African mahogany to match the counter tops and interior furniture. Bronze was used unsparingly for all her fastenings and fittings, especially below the water line. Her keel bolts, chain plates and rudder fittings are all in aluminium bronze.DAPHNE’s inventory is of a high standard and she comes fully equipped for cruising. (See details below).Regarding the ease of maintenance, we have attended to DAPHNE’s needs with a regular annual maintenance schedule and the boat remains in remarkably good condition, arguably better than when she left the building yard 16 years ago. We have kept the varnish work to a minimum, just enough to give her some shine.As a cruising boat & home for us, Ed's design has been everything we wanted and more. DAPHNE handles exceptionally well on all points of sail, her wide decks offer ample space to work the rig and she’s fast for her design type. She is not too heavy a boat for the two of us, there is ample space below deck, perfectly affordable to keep in a marina with bowsprit retracted or cantilevered out over the bow, easy to maintain and attracts daily comments about being a most beautiful boat wherever she goes.History
