“Mr A Primrose never designed a duff yacht, or if he did, no-one showed it to me! Well thought out, strongly built, sea-kindly and secure yachts like the Truman 30 mark out what was perhaps the heyday of British yacht building. Built today they would be eye-wateringly expensive compared to the foreign built offerings designed for a Mediterranean charter market or South German lakes. This is a solid well built yacht and deserves a kind and conscientious owner.”
