Notes

It is thought that this boat derived from the NUTMEG 24, designed by William Shaw (1964). Despite the reverse transom, fin keel with spade rudder, the basic hull shape seems strikingly similar. At about this time, Hughes Boatworks acquired the tooling from Tanzer Industries, the original builder of NUTMEG 24. Little notice has been made of this since the NUTMEG/HUGHES 24 were not built in great numbers. The HUGHES 25, on the other hand, proved to be a very popular model. (Thanks to Jack Gutter for additional info. on this yacht, as well as the owner of the boat in the photo who wished to remain anonymous.)
