___________________ BETTER THAN YOUR OLD MUM ___________________

"Chione  T " is a small (LOA = 30 feet), heavy displacement, gaff rigged cutter, launched in March 1998.   Designed along traditional lines, with a long keel, but built from modern materials, she retains a distinctive "classic" feel.  More specifically, she is a Tradewind Atoll (formerly known as a Tradewind 25) built by MB Yachts of Poole, UK.

I like this quaint frumpy descriptive sentence that was written in relation to this small yacht :   .............  " In summary, she's prettier than a white plastic bathtub, sails better than a country cottage, and will look after you better than your old mum. "
