Practical Boat Owner’s deputy Editor Ben Meakins and Editor David Pugh have undertaken a restoration project on  Snapdragon 23 ‘Hantu Biru’ over the last two years and she is very near completion as shown in the pictures and article from the recent Beaulieu Boat Jumble where she made her debut.

You can also follow progress on the completion  at

Hantu Biru is being fitted with a full range of our popular deck hardware to include T Tracks, mainsheet and spinnaker blocks. What seemed to be a straightforward restoration has taken much longer than they thought, but that’s boats for you!

Look out for their article on rigging the mast in the July edition of PBO and for further articles over the summer on fitting our deck hardware.
