"Caddie" is a classic, tough little bluewater cruising ketch based on the famous H28. This is a boat with a difference. From the beautiful timber and stainless steel bowsprit, the timber cap rails to the rich timberwork below you will appreciate the work of a master shipwright who has re-fitted this yacht to a standard that can only be described as extraordinary. "Caddie" however is not just a showboat. With a 50% ballast ratio and simple rig she is sea kindly, easy to sail and forgiving. Much of the equipment is near or as new.
