Advertiser's comments

The Ruffian 8.5 is a cruiser racer built in Northern Ireland. Designed by W.P.Brown as a bigger version of the very successful Ruffian 23. A very roomy yacht with full standing headroom and five berths, the Ruffian 8.5 earned itself a reputation as an excellent sea boat with excellent sailing performance. Strongly constructed, the Ruffian 8.5 is equally suitable for club racing or family sailing. The boat is designed to be easily handled with all lines led aft to the sheltered cockpit. An appointment to view is necessary as the boat is lying away.
