This customer built gaff cutter is based along the lines of a boat designed by Reg Freeman in 1934 with the lovely addition of a counter stern. "Sarah" was built by Benfleet Boat Co in 1987 and has a cold moulded hull which gives her a beautiful compromise of the delight of a classic wooden yacht but the benefits & easy maintenance of a modern GRP yacht.
