Robert Tucker was a prolific designer of "pocket cruisers" in the 16 - 25 foot range, built mostly in Australia and the UK during the 1950/60/70s. Many were intended for home construction or completion. His designs were built in huge numbers and include such well known models as the Silhouette, Caprice, Debutante, Gallant, Newbridge Navigator, Tucker 24, Corribee (and Coromandel derivative), Ballerina and Princess as well as many other production series, one off designs and motor boats.
An attempt has been made here to display a few of his more popular sailing designs.
