Capella of Kent : One of several Buchanans built by Bill Sutton
Capella of Kent is again up for sale, this time with her previuosly sky-blue coloured hull painted white. She has the look of a fast and capable yacht, but her current owner, unfortunately, has been unable to make much use of her due to ill health. Planked in teak she remains a desirable boat, in need of cosmetic attention.
Sutton & Wiggins built a number boats to Alan Buchanan's designs including Vae Victis, Vendra, Bonnet Rouge, Capella of Burnham, Cavalier of Kent, Dauber and Scorpion of Wyke.
