The pocket rocket MUSTANG 30 came from the board of the highly regarded dinghy and racing keelboat designer Paul Handley. Believed to be his only production design with a full deck and conventional interior. Its reported around 30 of the boats were built on the Isle of Wight.
Designed as a club racer the design proved to be highly capable and particularly well suited to short or two-handed events with some notable successes in the longer distance events including the challenging AZAB. While never a boat that could be classed as a 'Bandit' they do rate competitively under IRC and have proven capable against the more modern designs.
RESPECTABLE is a mark I version of the class which has been lightly used for local club racing in the last two ownership. Well looked after and maintained she is presented in ready to go condition with her inventory including highlights such as:
