The Seabird plan dates from William Fife III 1889, but this example was built by Stagnol Yard in 2001 respecting the original plans as closely as possible. Light weight wood epoxy construction has enabled the installation of a motor whilst respecting original build weight. An exceptional boat in every respect this true modern classic is easily handled and was originally designed to be sailed single handed.
