The world continues to change - here are John Curnow's images of the new Ringle 39, the Andy Dovell designed day sailer built in Burma.
Open cockpit allows for comfort, conversation and relaxation. - Ringle 39
This boat is the latest design from Dovell. It presents as an elegant and traditional day sailer, with a picnic boat heritage above the water line, but with some of the very latest in keel, rudder and hull technology below the water line.
Square top mainsail shows that the vessel is about business, just as much as pleasure. - Ringle 39
