With hull, deck and superstructure designed by Michel Dufour. they were considered to be'cruiser racers' in their day and with their masthead rig they still represent a surprisingly fastcruiser with immense volume.

This example has the 1.73m/5'8" cast iron fin keel and tiller steering.

The deck hatches and side windows were re-glazed recently, while the coach-roof stylingstripe/window line was also refinished in black two-part paint last year.
