This looks an interesting purchase. Does anyone know its history?

Richard Reddyhof had that boat built 20ish years ago for some ambitious cruising (Bay of Biscay springs to mind). He towed me back with it from half way across the channel when I picked up some dodgy petrol in France!

Should make a good project for someone.
