Blackwatch 24, 1981

The Blackwatch 24 is a very serious little pocket cruiser.

"Little Gull" has just been sailed from Erie, PA to New York City. She has been lovingly cared for.

The Blackwatch is amazingly stout for her size and can be sailed right along side the big boats and because of her two foot draft she can go into small shallow coves as well.

The Blackwatch is a fabulous pocket cruiser, similar in style to the Pacific Seacraft Flicka. She sports a large cockpit and cabin with twin settes that convert into a comfy double for weekending. "Little Gull" is seriously for sail and an excellent value.
