Feeling 286

Gilles Vaton designed this 1987 replacement for the 850, but the interior

remained very similar with its wrap-around saloon and minimalist fi t-out. A

twin aft cabin version was offered, but the lifting keel option was dropped in

favour of a shallow fi xed fi n, which drew 3ft 9in (1.1m). An extended transom

version increased overall length by 2ft and boosted boatspeed slightly, but

added nothing to the interior. Production continued well into the 1990s.
