On receipt of a two line ‘cable’ from Tasmania, Bill Matthew sent Jeff and Bobby the straightforward paperwork to enable them to select the various rig, construction and layout options for their new Vertue. Today we supply study plans which explains all of the options, lists of drawings and history of the development of the design throughout the years.
Jeff and Bobby selected the extended ocean cruising version with lead ballast, rigged as bermudan cutter with aluminium spars. These were dispatched in November 1975 and within the month construction on Southern Vertue had commenced.
