Deb 33

Sparkman & Stephens designed this elegant centreboard cruiser for wooden construction in the 1960s, but she appeared over here built in GRP in the Channel Islands in the early 1970s. She is a stiff and capable shoal-draught yacht, though the helm becomes unbalanced if she is overpressed and the offset prop makes handling under power hard work. She has a six-berth layout typical of the time, including three bunks in the saloon. Well built and sold with a good inventory, she was popular in her day and is still sought after in her natural habitat, on the East Coast.
