Modern Cruising with a Traditional Feel
to the Home Page of Geoff & Ann Johnson of Great Asby, Cumbria, UK.
site is primarily concerned with our pride and joy: "Chione T "
Her current home is at the Ardfern Yacht Centre in Argyll, on the West Coast of Scotland.
"Chione T " is a small (LOA = 30 feet), heavy
gaff rigged cutter, launched in March 1998. Designed along
traditional lines, with a long keel, but built from modern materials,
a distinctive "classic" feel. More specifically, she is a
Tradewind Atoll (formerly known as a Tradewind 25) built by MB Yachts
The purpose of this site is to promote our style of cruising on a "plastic gaffer" -
Traditional good looks.
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.
