Keel type

Long keel with lead ballast

This yacht is to a design by Raymond Wall, who was for many years chief designer at Camper & Nicholsons, before moving to head the design office of CS Yachts of Canada. She has a long keel with lead ballast and transom-hung rudder, and bears more than a little resemblance to a Twister, although with a little more pronounced sheer. She is of conventional carvel construction.


Raymond Wall

Although the name Raymond Wall is not as well known as other yacht designers, he has a long history of design work. He began his apprenticeship with the famous Robert Clark, also worked with Colin Mudie, and then set up on his own for a period before joining Camper and Nicholsons, where he became Chief Designer, amongst his designs there being such classics as the Nicholson 55. In 1977 he moved to Canada to work for CS Yachts.
