Design 119 - Bloodhound

I was reading through the new (July-2011) issue of Yachting magazine and noted an image and small article about royal yacht Bloodhound. I recalled seeing her in our files and sure enough, she is listed as design #119. There is a note in the file: Per OJS Bloodhound's hull was designed and built by Camper & Nicholson; rig and interior design by Sparkman & Stephens.

The plan list would show that to be true. The reference to Foxhound is a sister that was built to the design.

The website link listed in Yachting is just plain wrong. Click here to access Bloodhound's website and learn more about her. She's a beautiful boat.

  1. We should be ashamed at all remaining aspects of permitted animal cruelty in our mainly civilized countries. Historically, however, things do gradually change for the better. One tiny local example of this was when, in 2004, the law in Britain was changed so that people were no longer permitted to set dogs onto deer, hares and foxes etc so that these animals could be literally torn apart. Those activities were in a similar league to cock fighting and dog fighting and no one would seek to justify bringing those back – or wouldn’t they in a world where people still go to cheer watching bulls being tortured to death.
