The Comet 7.70 is a relatively little-known yacht in the UK, but was popular in the 1970s on the Continent. She combines a very fast hull (probably designed to race under Quarter Ton Cup rules when first built), with a very attractive and spacious interior, with a lot of careful design features. Although a five berth boat, she would be better cruised with two or three.

The design is in many ways similar to (though perhaps more stylish than) the Ecume de Mer from the same Finot design office.

The heads are under the central section of the vee-berth in the forecabin, as there is no separate toilet compartment. This is the inevitable sacrifice made in providing a reasonably spacious saloon in a yacht this small.

The entire galley unit, complete with sink and gimballed cooker, slides away when not in use

A large icebox with refrigeration is fitted under the aft bulkhead of the saloon

Owners photos

On deck she has a clear uncluttered foredeck, with the anchor well back level with the mast to keep the weight out of the ends for better performance - a clear indication of her racing heritage

Right: Normal check access to the engine is through a small access panel under the companionway steps. For more major work, the cockpit sole can be removed giving full access.
