____________________________ CATALYST ____________________________


Why do I love small yachts, the sea and sailing? It is because they have the capacity and power to make me think the things I like to think.

An interesting article about this little Phil Bolger yawl can be found here:

That's a great little boat

Hi BB.

Yes she's a lovely looking little boat. She was designed by the late famous Phil Bolger. She is trailerable and has water ballast. Apparently this profile and a few other concept drawings are all there is - she was never taken to the full design stage - which is a great pity. Still the profile is there - something like this beautiful little double ender could be designed and built!
