"Hebe" is a great example of this modern lugger designed by Nigel Irens. Constructed by Bridgend Boat Co. in 2000, and launched in 2001. The Romilly is a beautiful, fast and sea-kindly boat, with a powerful carbon rig and many classic details. The rig is designed so she can sail in even the lightest of breezes.
Her final fit-out was featured in Watercraft magazine's "Luggers of Today" feature. She comes with her full history and lots of extras. She was given post-construction RCD certification in 2010 (Category C). Extras include beaching legs, autohelm, solar charging, bronze winches, cockpit cushions, a 5hp Mariner outboard, and a single-axle combi trailer. New sails were purchased in 2012, with the originals still in good servicable condition, The hull was professionally stripped back to bare GRP in Spring 2020 by Jeremy Rogers & Co, checked, primed and antifouled. The centreboard has been stripped, epoxy coated and antifouled by Quayside marine, and a new winch fitted. In 2021 the winches were professionally serviced and the mast bases recoated in 2-pack paint.
