Petrina was designed by Alfred Westmacott and built in his yard at Woodnutts, St Helen's, Isle of Wight in 1937/38 as a day sailing boat with a lifting steel centre plate, which enables her to find her way into the shallowest waters and if needed take the ground on her sea legs.
LOA (including bowsprit) 24' 9" , beam 7' 6", draft 2' 6" (centre plate raised) displacement approx. 2 tonnes.
She completed a re-fit in 2018/19, works included:
- hull stripped back to the timbers & topsides re-splined
- installing a new lifting centre plate
- replacing the standing rigging
- fitting a new bowsprit
Petrina is an extremely solid and very steady and simple sailing vessel and well suited for family outings.
Full surveyor's report showing the full restoration is available.
