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’. A sleek, streamlined fishing boat that is fast, smooth and comes about well. A truly lovely boat to sail. She is fast!
