Marseilles Classics

There were a few classics down in the vieux port in Marseille, this one reminds me of a Morcambe  Bay Prawner which was based at the Elephant boatyard for many years, but I can't for the life of me remember the name.

Mooring stern to Med fashion means it's easy to get  a close up view of the cockpit, this looks to be built for offshore sailing with a very small foot well and scuppers on the transom, looks a little exposed and for readers of Sailing Anarchy forum the "alarming and dangerous offset companionway".

Sweet lines, lovely counter stern with a clear racing heritage.

Very tempting, Mrs BB had to drag me away from what looks like it might be an Alden yawl.

Probably more practical known as a peche promenade, great dayboat, safe deep cockpit ideal for sailing around to the local rocky coves for a picnic.
