Half ton or Three Quarter Ton IOR Yacht????

I took this picture in the 1980's of this yacht in Lymington. The hull is new and had no name on it do you know if this is a Half Ton yacht or a Three Quarter Ton yacht and what design is she ???? Any idea's ???


  1. I think this is actually a one tonner by the general proportions; best guess at the moment looking at the transom, foils etc is the German Frers designed Blazer of Paget/Blitz featured in the August blog, but not totally certain.

  2. I believe that this is Local Hero IV. The boat is current sailed out Portishead as "Hero" and has been lightly modified.

  3. Better think she's a Ph. Briand design...(sistership Passion2?)
