Carter Concubine

A cruiser-racer from 1977, with a world champion three-quarter tonner in her pedigree, designed by Dick Carter and built by Northshore. She has six to seven berths in a lightweight but well-built interior designed with racing crews in mind. She is very fast for her type and weatherly upwind, but a bit
twitchy on a run. There are quite a few of these boats around and they still make good club racers but are not, perhaps, the ideal family cruiser.
