The East Anglian One Design was designed by Alan Buchanan in 1957 and was an instant success. Described by Yachting World as a thoroughly sound, straightforward little yacht, these pretty craft have stood the test of time very well and and continue to flourish. This good example has a slightly raised coachroof which gives both excellent headroom and a more spacious feel to the interior. Well built by Harry Feltham and well maintained since, this is a good example at a sensible price and definitely worth a look.

Long keel with cast iron ballast (keel bolts recently checked and replaced as required). Keel hung rudder with tiller steering. Teak laid cockpit sole.
