Biscay 36

The design and style of this long-keeled, ketch-rigged cruiser is very much that of a wooden yacht built in GRP. She was designed by Alan F Hill to include the heavy-displacement cruising characteristics many yachtsmen regard as essential: easy motion, directional stability, good sea-keeping andan easily handled but fl exible and powerful rig. She fi rst appeared in 1974, moulded by Robert Ives and fitted out to a high standard by Falmouth Boat Construction. She proved popular and had a reasonably long production run. She has a generous galley and a large chart table over
the head of the quarterberth.
