Ibex BM.27 was built in Brixham by J W & A Upham in 1896. She was the fastest sailing trawler in the West Country, working all year round with a crew of four men and a boy. She was sunk by a German U-Boat in 1918 after the crew had been allowed to take to their boat. She weighed 42 tons with a 39.5’ rig with mainsail, that was later cut down to 38’. Good reports have come from modellers who have built their Brixham Trawler from this hull. A large 50” hull. A sleek, streamlined fishing boat that is fast, smooth and comes about well. A truly lovely boat to sail.She is fast! Fittings available separately.
