Tumbler is a Rummer Yawl designed by Kim Holman, built by H King and Sons, Ipswich in 1962. Holman designed the original yacht for himself and raced her for several seasons in Class 111 with notable success.
The design demonstrates some American influence in her greater beam for a 24’ water-line length than was normal in English yachts at the time with almost the same beam at waterline as at deck level and generous freeboard thus giving volume to the cabin. In addition Holman gave her quite a full bilge, kept her draft to a minimum, gave her a ballast ratio in excess of 40% and kept a low aspect to the rig, all quite innovative at the time. A very sweet lift to the counter and a rising sheer forward give the hull a most attractive line.
Although Kim Holman declared that he designed the yacht to cruise rather than race, she showed her performance in many races An attractive benefit of this design is the interior volume and feel of space in the cabin and the low aspect, cutter-headed yawl rig makes her very manageable for a light crew

Tumbler is a beautiful boat in excellent condition. The electronics are modern and comprehensive. Below deck would benefit from some TLC and replacement of the cushions and covers, but she is in very good repair. She is used frequently, but the vendor is requiring more berths, so is ready to move on.
