Description

Stephen Jones forged a young reputation as the designer of some of the 1970s and 1980s most extreme, but aesthetically pleasing-looking IOR-Rule racing yachts. In more recent years his traditionally inspired, modern underbody production designs for the Hunter Boats/ Cornish Crabbers 'Mystery 35' and the Rustler Yachts 'Rustler 33' really caught the eye of production yacht buyers with a more discerning eye for elegance. METEOR, which Jones designed for himself, goes one step beyond, employing modern wood construction techniques to come up with his unique take on a "Spirit of Tradition" racer/ cruiser. She's a Spirit of Tradition division winner at classic regattas and serves as a successful and very fleet of foot family cruiser.
