A great representative of this classic Aage Nielsen design with graceful lines, efficient rig and the benefit of a lifting centreboard, HUSSAR is a versatile and lovely cruiser that has carried its current family from NY to Nova Scotia and cruising over 20,000 miles. Surveyed in January 2016 the surveyor observed: “HUSSAR is a fine example of a classic CCA jib headed yawl. She was built of quality marine materials to high standards of workmanship. She appears in sound structural condition. Her hull is tight and fair. This boat is a credit to a vigilant owner doing constant maintenance.”
