By far the most important factor was the necessity to protect the hull whose lines would achieve the ability to perform in all weather conditions under sail or power and especially both. The marine architect, Gordon Wyatt, was responsible for initiating the development of these lines from the Baltic Fisherman, a motor fishing vessel which enjoys a reputation amongst professional seamen for seaworthiness and the ability to work in extreme weather.
The characteristics of this traditional shape were refined to give an easy entry to soften pounding and help sailing ability; a generous beam to promote buoyancy; a "Canoe" stern to minimize any broaching tendency; a 50% ballast ratio to create stiffness; and a long keel to ensure steady directional control which helps to balance the easily handled but powerful ketch rig.
Having resolved the hull shape, no less effort was given to the superstructure design.This incorporates wide side decks protected by high bulwarks, a safe working foredeck, deep self draining cockpit, and of course, the characteristic trawler shaped wheelhouse with its built in warmth and comfort that enables the owner to sail throughout the year.
While outward appearances are of rugged dependability, the accommodation has been given the soft touch. Although every inch of available space has been utilized to the maximum, the combination of a selection of carefully chosen fabrics and the natural warmth of teak induce a below deck atmosphere of discreet elegance. Ease of living is further helped by a carefully designed, well equipped galley together with top quality marine fittings for cabin heating, lighting and ventilation.
