Yacht description

Duet was designed by Sir Thomas Glenn-Coats in 1926 to compete in the International 6M class. Built by the renowned Scottish yard McGruer & Co, she has an outstanding pedigree.

Following the war she became a “Q Class “handicap cruiser with the addition of her attractive cuddy/cabin and interior accommodation etc.

She was restored by the International College of Boatbuilding and displayed at the London Boat Show as a demonstration of their work and skill.

In more recent years she has had refits by leading Lymington boat builders, Steve Etheridge and Neville Hutton.

In 2011 she took overall victory in the specialist Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival, held annually on the Isle of Wight in which 150 + gaff rig yachts took part.

On her way down to the Mediterranean she competed in and won the Open French Championship for International Classic 6M Class at La Trinite-sur-Mer

She has since raced from her Cannes base, winning several races including the Vintage Class overall at Les Voiles d’Antibes 2013 and the Yacht Club de France “Coupe d’Automne” in 2012. In 2014, 3rd Les Voiles d’Antibes and 2nd  Régates Royales Cannes.
