Spirit of Tradition cruising / racing yachts designed by Stephen Jones

We have a long-standing tradition of building high quality wood/epoxy racing and cruising yachts (up to over 70 feet). We therefore have great pleasure in presenting two Stephen Jones designed Spirit of Tradition cruiser / racers, the 43ft and 46ft Traditional Sloop.

These yachts are aimed at being able to race competitively in classic regattas both here and abroad and the designs can be tailored to individual specifications and requirements. The designs are intended for timber construction in modern epoxy techniques, and share a similar long ended profile and traditional deckhouse type.

Further details and drawings of the interior layouts are available upon request – please do contact us if you require any additional information. See our ‘New Builds’ section on the website for more Stephen Jones designs.
