Bright Raven is a classic American sports cruiser that has been very well maintained and loved for the past 10 years by her present owners. She is clean and well presented for a new owner to enjoy for many years to come. Bright Raven has an interesting history: her design changed the thinking of traditional boat design. Her beam was huge which equated to spacious accommodation. On the basis that we pay for berthing in length, this is boat gives good value for living space. The quote from a yachting journalist at the time sums up the hull characteristics back in 1990: “I will also make the flat statement that the 10 Meter is the best riding, best handling, and most efficient planning hull to appear in many years. And the reason for this combination of qualities is called the DeltaConic hull design”.
