The name rather says it all for this 38ft heavy-displacement, blue-water liveaboard. Designed by Alan Pape in the 1960s, she is flush-decked, but the deep hull allows full headroom down below. The doghouse covers a raised area containing the large galley and navigation area, as well as a quarterberth for the navigator, largely separated from the main living quarters. These are at a lower level and include five berths, a large heads and a huge amount of stowage. The long
keel and cutter ketch rig do not make for sparkling upwind performance, but she is a powerful reaching boat well-suited to ocean passage-making. She was replaced by a similar Cuttyhunk 41 in 1973 and a 58ft version was also built.
