Design 2222-C2 - Tramp

Earlier this week we posted an article about Prospect of Whitby V and her sister, Dorothea. As a blog reader correctly pointed out, there was a third boat built to this design, Tramp. The owner contacted us and was kind enough to send these images. The boat has been under the same ownership since 1998 and makes her home on the east coast of England.

As I mentioned we don't know much about her. The file says "Tramp is a modified version of Prospect of Whitby V" and that's about it. She was built by the Torquato Romano Gennari Shipyard of Italy and was launched in 1976.

It looks like the rig was increased in height over the original two boats and the keel was modified. Here'a a telex from S&S to the shipyard which explains the change to the keel.
