Designer: Bruce Farr
Additional Information: In 1980 Bruce Farr was commissioned to design Espada for East Coast yachtsman Mike Evers who ironically enough is my uncle. Built by Geoff Hunt, she remained on the East Coast for a few years before changing name to Silent Movie and going to the West Country. Bought to Poole and renamed Espada, she had been laid up in a garden since 1999. Over the Winter of 2005/6 my husband bought her to Cowes and fully restored her. Espada has 4 sisterships around the World including the New Zealand Anchor Challenge.
