Bermudan Cutter - 1919

Sailing BoatsBermudan Cutter1919Netherlands

Bermudan Cutter 1919 40 ft

Fred Shepherds board always imbued the best of the English pre war designs; beautiful of course, capable at sea and so natural in their element when sailing. It is hard to criticise the treatment given to ALINE IV by her current owner who restored her in 2002 and has rendered her a fast yet easy to sail vintage yacht to his and his familys full enjoyment - just as much as that of her first owner a century ago!

ALINE was originally designed in 1913 for a family with 5 boys all of whom were to serve their country in the First World War. Remarkably they all returned and the building proceeded for ALINE IV to be launched in 1919. The first owners lived in Woodbridge on the river Deben, were she was kept on a mooring.

Now she is for sale at Sea Independent. Inspections highly recommended.
