About this Harrison Butler 26ft OMEGA DESIGN BERMUDIAN SLOOP


HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

The Omega Design dates from 1936 and is the last in a series of yachts with a 22ft 6ins waterline and transom stern from the well respected Dr. T Harrison Butler. The design conforms to the metacentric principal with the heeled and upright centres of areas practically coinciding. OMEGA is a development of the successful Cyclone and Englyn designs.

OMEGA of BROOM is one of five surviving examples of the design and was built in 1938/39 by Southampton Launch & Boat Company for Clive Clarke who owned the vessel until 1949 keeping her at Lymington. Thomas Law briefly became OMEGA’s next owner followed by Dr T Kennerly and then Dr F Scott. In 1960 Wing Cmdr. Anthony Brown acquired the vessel, mooring her in Poole Harbour. Lt. Cmdr. Peter London DSC RN bought OMEGA in 1966, moving her to Cornwall before selling in 1969 to Robert and Manette Van Hooghtien of Ghent. In 1982 Liam O’Carrol purchased OMEGA eventually laying her up in France where in the early 1990s she was bought by Roy Aldworth of Cornwall. Roy shipped her back to the England where a total restoration began at this farm. OMEGA was re-launched in the late 1990s and moored in Plymouth Sound. In new ownership, OMEGA was sailed to the East Coast where she is currently stationed.
