Overview

A very solid example of this popular modern classic. 'Doris' has been in the same ownership since 2006 during which much time and money has been invested. Set up for the true classic sailing experience, Doris will appeal to the traditionalist who wants all of the charm and quirk of an old boat without the difficulties associated with wooden boat ownership and seeking all the positives of a modern fibreglass hull. Her beautifully designed and heavily laid up hull will not only provide extreme seaworthiness, but combined with her classic rig and long bow sprit , this is a vessel that is bound to get you noticed wherever you go.
