Here's a pretty unique boat. Of aluminum. More than 200 were built. Unknown to what degree Eric Tabarly was involved.

This boat has the local reputation of sailing as well as a snow shovel  ;D We've got one at the club that was abandoned by its owner and left to die a slow death as nobody wants to touch her. It was designed to be as cheap as possible, and so saving money on soldering they also used really thick metal and so she is very heavy. She is also famous for her uncomfortable, tippy, and wet ride as water sloshes around all over everyone and fills up the cockpit  ::)



No relation at all to Tabarly.

Thanks, my friend. You gave me a laugh.
I did read another, less than favorable opinion of this yacht. (not QUITE as harsh!).  Whatever Tablerly had to do with this particular boat, he will always be 'The Oak', in my book.
