Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Romilly. Designed by Nigel Irens the Romilly was a smaller derivative of the larger Roxanne. As a day boat with occasional overnight stops the Romilly provides superb performance in a design that can be launched and recovered from a trailer. Romilly has a high ballast ratio, the GRP version uses the same cast iron centre board as Roxanne. She has a very fine hull form and a relatively large sail area making for a fast vessel.
