What is there not like about this modern classic. A superb British built weekender & daysailer built in modern composite materials but in a classic style. The epoxy foam core construction with lifting centerboard and rudder make this boat relatively light & easy to handle for slipway launch and recovery of a trailer. The light weight carbon gaff rig can be stepped by one person. A huge cockpit and truly impressive sailing performance really demonstrate what modern small boat sailing should be all about. And to boot you can sleep on board over night!!
If you want classic looks, pride of ownership, safe easy handling, superb performance and a Swallows and Amazons experience, then you really need to look no further than this Kite built by Demon Yachts on the East Coast. We have superb boat reviews available on request.
