William Paynter

The William Paynter is a Jumbo class lugger, open, double-ended and introduced exclusively to St.Ives during the mid-1880’s. The modern Jumbos are replicas of some of the smallest (20ft 6’ LOA) designed by the renowned boatbuilder, William Paynter. Although rigged in the same way, Jumbos were significantly smaller than the other luggers which earned them their ironic nickname. With all the characteristics of the dipping lug rig in an easily manageable form, the Jumbo is an ideal boat on which to learn. The replicas were researched and built by Jonny Nance of the St.Ives Jumbo Association.

Okay, thank you
