Phoenix 58

We passed this unusual boat at Fenny Compton just before Christmas. I'd been looking out for it because Mortimer Bones had seen it a Thrupp a few days before, and had told me it was heading north. The builders seem to have taken down their Phoenix 58 web page, so here's Granny Buttons' take on the boat. Personally, I'm not that keen. As it comes towards you, the big blank front window makes it look rather unfriendly. And the yacht style stern just looks odd. If I remember correctly, it took a very long time to sell, and the builders don't appear to have made another one, so it looks as though I'm not alone.
