DESCRIPTION

Antique 20th Century English Gaff Cutter pond yacht, planked on wooden frame dating to the first half of the 20th century. The yacht is an example of British pond racing yacht and would have raced against similar yachts in competitions, club against club, all over Britain, sometimes against overseas clubs as well.

Just like in real sailing competitions, to make things equal in the race, waterlines had to be the same length, plus overall area of the sails needed to be the same. This particular yacht is very unusual due to its deep keel, rarely seen in pond yachts of this period. Today these pond yachts are extremely decorative and a great addition to any home.
