Britannia North Star.jpg


Our Lovely 12 inch Britannia Polestar, is a gaff rigged boat has been inspired by the vintage Victorian pilot cutters that were used to guide ships safely round the coasts of Britain. The design of Pilot cutters owed their shape to the need for a light easy to handle vessel that was stable in heavy seas. The Britannia Polestar is hand carved from a solid piece of timber, fitted with a tough long keel made from stainless steel keel to help provide straight-line stability in the water


The size of the Britannia Polestar does not detract from her performance but she should be considered a cruiser foremost she is fitted with a pair of fully adjustable jib sails set over a bowsprit and a traditionally shaped gaff mainsail allowing you to make the best use of the conditions at the time of sailing. The Britannia Polestar is small enough to fit in the car and the Britannia Polestar can be easily carried down to the waters edge.
