    Sailing BoatsClassic Sailing BoatsHarrison ButlerCyclone

    1926 Harrison Butler Cyclone design gaff yawl with 10hp Yanmar diesel engine. Little Kingfisher is one of Dr Harrison Butlers early 'pocket cruiser' designs, with his trademark and unmistakable sweet lines and good sailing performance. Well maintained and restored in previous ownerships , Little Kingfisher is in full sailing commission on the South Coast and ready to enjoy for carefree sailing days and weekends afloat. With her relatively shallow draught she is also ideal for estuaries and rivers or coastal cruising.

    History
    The Cyclone Design dates from 1919 and is a development of Harrison Butler’s early design Seagull published in 1912. LITTLE KINGFISHER is one of only a small number of yachts built to this successful design by A H Watty Boatbuilder in Fowey in 1926. Before the war, John Carter was a registered owner stationing the yacht in Itchenor. From 1947 to 1951 Major-General Sir Horace Roome KCIE CB CBE MC owned LITTLE KINGFISHER mooring her in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. During the 1950s Major D S Sole and later A E Bloomfield became registered owners keeping the yacht in Cowes and Woodbridge respectively. More recent owners include Richard Best, 1975, John Birchall 1994 and Dan & Hannah Matthews daughter of sailor, writer and broadcaster Tom Cunliffe. The present owners bought LITTLE KINGFISHER in 2017 and completed all the recommendations from a full survey in February that year. Previously LITTLE KINGFISHER was restored by boatbuilder Paul Drake in the years leading up to 2009 on the East Coast.
