26' Golden Virginia Launch
Pete Greenfield, Editor of the Watercraft Magazine asked me to design this launch and is going to partly finance it by giving up smoking, hence the name Golden Virginia ! She is strip planked and is fitted out with settee berths and simple basic wc and cooking facilities. The stern has a fantail similar to the Edwardian 19 and she could be fitted out without the saloon to make a splendid open launch.
The combination of fantail stern and plumb stem is North American in style and very workman like.
