Bowman 45 cutter-rigged yacht, designed by Chuck Paine and built by Bowman Yachts Ltd, Southampton in 1994 but not put into service until after her display at the 1995 London Boat Show. Two owners since new, both of whom lived on board for extended periods and cruised extensively in European, Atlantic and Caribbean waters. Refitted by Rustlers at the start of our ownership in 2009. Two double/twin cabins (1 forward and 1 aft), 2 pipe-cots and 1 other settee berth in the saloon, all fitted with lee-cloths for convenient use at sea. Fast and very strongly built, well maintained and fully fitted out for extended short-handed cruising by a couple or small family.

Currently in the Caribbean with owners available to host viewings by prior arrangement. Call our Falmouth office for details.
