Notes

Along with the CARTER 30, the CARTER 33 is one of the most popular of the designers 'series built' boats. They were available through his company Carter Offshore and built primarily in Greece.
The same design was also built in Australia, and Sweden.
(Not to be confused with the CARTER 3/4 TON which appeared later and is a different design,
(A version of the CARTER 33, with shorter rig, did fall within the RORC 1/2 ton threshold - 21.7'.)
Thanks to Mike Davies for providing additional information.
