I was having a cup of tea at the cafe in Hamble on Sunday morning when this sports boat went past, thinking it looked familiar I went back trough some old post and sure enough the name Redrow came up from a holiday in Fowey a few years ago.
Looking none the worse for her partial sinking and rescue by the Fowey lifeboat back in 2014, Redrow is an Ultimate 20 which I have to say looks like a fun boat.
The design called for a monohull with multihull performance, which offers a dry and stable platform with safe interior space for kids or crew. It is also lightweight and trailerable, with dinghy like responsive and handling, oh and all that with the cockpit comfort of a 30 footer which is a pretty compelling package.
Ultimate 20 Class Association.
