Belle Ile a 10M. Cruising Boat.


 
Once in a while I have the good surprise to receive photos and now often videos about boats I have designed, some a long time ago. This is the case of "Belle Ile", this nostalgic "Colin Archer" built in steel with the twist of having twin keels limiting the draft to 4'-3".

 

 
As a coincidence, I just sold a set of plans of this seaboat, the 34th. to Canada. I wrote in a previous article about Belle Ile, that in times of trouble people are again attracted to simple, solid, safe and not so slow type of escape machine.
