E-Boat

This one-design trailer-sailer

was intended as a pocket

racer, but also proved an

economical cruiser-racer for

dinghy sailors moving up.

Introduced in 1976, she was

designed by Julian Everitt

and built by a number of

yards all over Europe, so

standards vary and some

were amateur-completed.

She is flush-decked so

accommodation and

headroom are restricted,

though there are four

berths. A cruising version

with a coachroof was

introduced late in the day.

She is fast and fun.
