About this Traditional Souwester 18


A Sou'wester 18 built by Barry Chisam, Bluebelle is Gaff rigged sloop, built 1988, she is a rare example of a version of this attractive and seaworthy craft built in this open style. A really beautiful little boat, with lots of character and attention to detail.  In concept she is fast and traditionally appealing with classic lines but also benefiting from the low maintenance associated with modern construction.  She is an excellent dayboat capable of coastal passages while her shoal draft makes her an easy choice for those wanting to explore estuaries and rivers, an adventurous owner could even camp onboard as there is ample stowage and plenty of room for a roll bed on the cockpit floor
