Description

1978 Bristol Channel Cutter BCC  28'

location:  Luperon, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

1978 Bristol Channel Cutter BCC
A true classic, this beauty has been well maintained and sailed far with her previous owner. Anyone who is keen on offshore sailing knows that Bristol Channel Cutters are proven winners in their class.  A Lyle Hess design, (who is known for designing Serrafyn, one of Lin and Larry Pardey's most famous boats) there is so much attention to detail and historical attributes to Suits Us.  The previous owner, an exquisite cabinet maker,  has meticulously maintained and repaired things along the way.  She has put so much care and love into her boat and it shows.  Mahogany being refurbished and replaced in 2020,  keeping Suits Us to a traditional style and look, while accentuating her character. She is moored in Luperon, Dominican Republic, which is known for it's excellent protection from hurricanes in the Caribbean.   

Notes:  An earlier, racing version (IOR Half Ton) of the BRISTOL 29.9 with less stern overhang.
