Lady Belle

I couldn't find much information about Lady Belle other than she was designed and built by Harley Mead as a gaff yawl, built as a yacht based on Falmouth Quay Punt lines.

She looks really great freshly painted and varnished and ready for the season.

Her Quay Punt influence is very clear and counters the popular misconception that a yawl  is defined by the  mizzen being situated behind the rudder, which was discussed in a number of early posts on this very blog.
