Please note that we have recently published a new version of our website at
www.eoa2.org. All future updates and new content will be uploaded to the new
website. Please go to eoa2.org for further information on the EOA and for
resources on the Elizabethan range of yachts.
This is the smallest of the Peter Webster-built range
of Elizabethan yachts and was designed by Webster and David Thomas in 1969.
She is a particularly pretty design, looking like a scaled-down offshore
cruiser racer of her day with long overhangs but a lifting keel. She is very
stable but can also be quite quick in a decent breeze. A Mk II came out in
the mid-1970s and raised headroom by 6in to 5ft and introduced other
improvements to the four-berth interior. Inboard and outboard models were
built and some early models were home completed.
