|The Colvin Gazelle is the most famous design to come from the desk of US naval architect Thomas Colvin. The first hull was built by Colvin himself for his own personal use and was named "Gazelle".
She is a two mast Gaff Schooner with a wheelhouse fitted out in cedar and hardwood, presented in the privateer style. This vessel will suit someone looking for a unique yacht and the addition of the wheelhouse make her a one off design. You will not see another yacht like this on the water.
Many reliable Colvin Gazelles are cruising on the world oceans and this yacht a with full history, manuals, even original plans is a true bargain for someone with a passion for Traditional Ships. This owner is only the second owner since he purchased off the builder.
The schooner gaff rig not only complements the traditional line of the hull but also makes for easy shorthanded sail handling, even in rough weather. The length of the yacht includes the attractive bow-sprit.
If you are looking for a unique boat don't miss out on this great opportunity.
