ABOUT THE FALMOUTH QUAY PUNTS:
Falmouth Quay Punts were well-established by around 1870 as working sailing boats that ferried stores, gear and even ballast to and from the square-riggers that used the Port of Falmouth. To compete for custom from the ships' captains, they used to sail out to sea to meet ships, and they were also regularly raced by their owners, alongside others built purely as yachts, in local regattas for which there were substantial sums as cash prizes. Most working punts were yawl rigged, with removable topmasts allowing a lower mainmast to let the punts lie alongside square-riggers without the masts fouling the ship's yards.
Many of the original working boats ended up being converted to yachts, as steam took over from commercial sail. One of these working boats, the 28 foot 'Curlew' built in 1898, has taken her owners, the Carrs, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, and almost everywhere in between, all without an engine. many more Quay Punts have also made notable blue water passages.
The 'Heard 35' is built to order on GRP hulls, the lines of which were taken from original drawings, by the late Martin Heard's Gaffers & Luggers yard at Tregatreath, Falmouth. At 35 foot on deck, Heard 35s are big for Punts. Most now also have taller rigs with pole masts, allowing a topsail to be set on a wire stay rather than having to hoist a heavy spar, although some have been built with removable topmasts, and a couple with the traditional punt yawl rig. Being custom-built, various deck, cockpit and coachroof layouts have been built, along with various interior layouts.
