This interesting and unusual yacht was lying on a mooring in Fowey recently.

The hull is constructed in clinker like planks, although that top plank is uncharacteristically wide and a bit of a odd shape.

The basic hull shape has quite fine ends and reminded me of a Van de Stadt designed Warshipp , were it not for the reverse sheer line. Not sure about the raised full width coach roof, but it would give good interior space in what is a small volume yacht.

With roller reefing on both jib and stay sail Symphony looks like she has done some serious offshore sailing. It would be nice to know more about her.
