Trooper

Trooper is a 9 ton Bermudan Cutter, canoe stern and centre cockpit constructed in wood in 1959 by David Hillyard of Littlehampton.  David Hillyard made his name boat building affordable wooden boats in between the 1920s and early 1970s.  The 9 ton series was his most popular and Trooper was built in the heyday of the yard.  Hillyards are known for their solid construction but not for their speed.  She has a new rig designed in 2005 by the renowned marine architect Ed Burnett and sails beautifully.  She is owned locally by the Guys and is used for local Helford cruising with all the family aboard.
