Alan Buchanan designs need little introduction. A master of his art, he had a gift for designing yachts that are easy on the eye, sail beautifully and are comfortable and seakindly in all conditions. Aelfwyn has been kept up to the mark by a careful owner - with recent sails and engine - and enjoyed notable success in local Regattas over the last 15 years, but now the time has come to move on. She is currently registered as an historic vessel.
