The walkway to the aft cabin has the heads to starboard. The aft cabin has a double berth with lockers to starboard. There are generous hatches for each cabin giving the neat layout an airy feel.   Interior trim is mahogany.

          An unusual yacht designed to meet uncomfortable conditions with ‘panache’.    From the echoes of Moitessier in the astrodome to the low wetted surface of the slippery hull and the very satisfying near 50% ballast ratio she is the antithesis of modern French commercially orientated yachts and yet as French as the good brigadier Gerard.   This is a passionate design for an individualist who knows what the sea can do and would not care to meet it in a thinly disguised underpowered motor-sailer; the up to the minute sloop with 30% ballast ratio and a half rolled genny about as useful upwind as a potato sack.

          The keel is a long fin.   The deep vertical rudder is mounted on a goodly skeg.    The cutter headed rig will give flexibility without the need for too much sail changing.   Masses of storage space make longer cruises easier to cater for and could be used for more fuel and water if needed.

          The condition of this yacht appears neat, seamanlike and seaworthy at a moments notice. The exterior is well painted and unmarked, the interior fresh though lived in and not pristine.   The owner is a single-hander who has lived on board for a number of years whilst cruising the Mediterranean.   For health reasons he has decided to swallow the anchor for a while which means that the boat comes equipped with his full inventory.
