"Vixen" was purchased by her current owner when new. Her owner was lucky enough to see the various stages of her build, he wanted a boat with good sea keeping qualities for safe and comfortable estuary sailing. Her owner tells us "Vixen" has not disappointed in this respect, as he was downsizing from a larger vessel he found the cabins on smaller boats to be too restrictive, the open cockpit of "Vixen" is great and gives a "big boat" feel, the cockpit hood also gives good protection and can be kept up whilst sailing if desired. Overall a very attractive design and a great boat to sail!


These are designed by Ted Spears and the brief was for a safe trailer sailer that the owner could use to explore lakes, rivers and estuaries. The appearance and ease of handling were of equal importance. A traditional concept with regard to the rig and hull shape was the natural solution. The hull shape is evocative of 18th century naval cutters and gigs and
has an easily driven shape with fine entry having the transom tucked up. Reserve buoyancy in the hull will make for a very stiff vessel able the stand up to her canvas. Plenty of sheer gives a jaunty appearance and helps to keep the crew dry. The rig offers plenty of sail area for light conditions or a good thrash with a heavy crew. The ease of handling and reefing a gaff sail together with the traditional appearance works well with the hull shape. The mast is approximately the same length as the hull to facilitate trailing the craft with safety. The bowsprit “unplugs” and everything stows onboard. The twin cockpits are laid out to enable three large adults to enjoy the cruise or with everything to hand for a single-hander.
