In the 1970's the Quarter Ton Cup was hotly contested internationally and a number of designs came to the market as the result of this burst of enthusiasum. This Offshore 1/4 Tonner 'Flash Point', was the inspiration of Bernard Olesinski, a yacht designer famed for designing large superyachts but he cut his teeth and honed his skills on sailing vessels such as this. Slightly minimalistic but a refreshingly simple and uncomplicated cruiser / racer, the Offshore 1/4 tonner will inspire those who enjoy exilerating sailing with more than a meaningful accommodation package. Prettier than most of her counter parts she is pleasing to the eye and no doubt sails as well as she looks. A great package for not a lot of money!
