    Rustler 31 " Decade "

    Built by Maltings of Essex in 1980 and finished by Vic Taylor (Yachtmaster and Examiner) in Exeter. Launched 1984 and sailed predominantly in the South West. Bought by a Scot in 1990 and sailed from Troon on the west coast. Bought in 2003 and sailed from Portland, Dorset. A reluctant sale due to domestic reasons - Decade was bought by us in 2004. Always wintered ashore.

    Great yacht with legendary sea keeping and we will be sad to see her go. Yachting World wrote ‘…the Rustler 31’s sea-keeping ability is legendary and delightfully sure footed in that purposeful way that is the hallmark of well bred, long-keeled yachts of moderate to heavy displacement’.
