Rustler 31, 1969
Designed by Kim Holman, hull moulding by Thames Marine & completed by Anstey Marine. A sought after long keeled coastal cruiser, excellent in a seaway and great long distance passage maker.
Described by PBO as a boat that “exudes an air of rugged durability and inspires immediate confidence that she will behave predictably and correctly at all times, being easily handled by a small crew, yet weatherly and reasonably fleet of foot”.
