The Samphire range of cruising yachts was designed by David Cannell and built by North Sea Craft in the 1970s and 80s.
The range included the Samphire 23, Samphire 26 and Samphire 29. Samphires
are noted for their seaworthiness, traditional looks and solid 'little

Bermudan rigs, inboard engines, heavy lay-ups, 'She-dek' imitation
teak decks, balsa cored decks, and a foam cored beam to support
