Cavalier Of Kent : Stunning Restoration In Progress
Cavalier Of Kent is one of twelve boats built to Alan Buchanan's Vashti design, this class of boat being regarded by many as the pinnacle of this designer's work. Although built to race, they also make excellent cruising boats, capable of fast and safe passage making at sea. Cavalier Of Kent is currently being restored to an exceptionally high standard by Neil Blake as the above recent photograph shows.
