"Chione  T " is a small (LOA = 30 feet), heavy displacement, gaff rigged cutter, launched in March 1998.   Designed along traditional lines, with a long keel, but built from modern materials, she retains a distinctive "classic" feel.  More specifically, she is a Tradewind Atoll (formerly known as a Tradewind 25) built by MB Yachts of Poole.

The purpose of this site is to promote our style of cruising on a "plastic gaffer" -

Traditional good looks.
Seakindly performance
Modern equipment
Easy maintenance
GREAT FUN!

 In summary, she's prettier than a white plastic bathtub, sails better than a country cottage, and will look after you better than your old mum.
