Tumblehome was conceived by renowned boatbuilder Tim Whelpton for his own use. Designed to be a fast easily handled cruising yacht capable of sailing in the shallow waters around the East Coast, she is cutter rigged with a lifting centreplate. The GRP hull, designed by Sparkman & Stephens, gives low maintenance whilst the teak deck and varnished upperworks are a delight to the eye, whilst down below there is the warm ambience of a wooden vessel with teak joinery and exposed beams. This is a unique vessel, cleverly thought out in every detail and constructed with care and skill to the highest standard and will draw admiring glances wherever she sails.
