HOD

Hamble One Design spotted for sale over in Emsworth and looking very nice. the classs was I believe built by Luke & Sons in their yard just upriver from the Royal Southern YC.


For sale and for a 105 year old boat not looking bad. Apparently the lines and construction drawings of Jess an HOD  including description appeared in Yachting Monthly, June 1913 page 165 if you can find a copy.



A little hard to read, she's called Dulcie. With those lines and deep keel I imagine she's a delight to sail in the often choppy Solent waters.

  1. She's a beauty for sure - always admire her when I cycle through the yard on one of my routes to work...

  3. Great to see one that is still capable of sailing, ours has stood awaiting restoration for years. I have a photo copy of the YM article to which you refer. Very happy to share if of interest?

  5. I had a HOD many years ago here in Falmouth She was then called ALERT and might well be the one in the photo. She was featured on the front cover of Classic Boat magazine No 1
