Designed as a elegant racing gaff cutter, and described as being half way between an Essex Smack and a Sydney Harbour 18 footer, the Secret 20 offers fast cruising in a trailerable - and, indeed, garage-able! - size. Providing a potential 2+2 berths, she has a small cabin with basic accommodation for two, with a further two berths possible in the cockpit with the addition of extra berth cushions (not included in sale).

This Secret 20 has been built and finished to a high standard by the current owner and benefits from a number of worthwhile upgrades and improvements over the original design. She was built in Spain and remained there in storage for a number of years prior to being towed to England and launched for the first time on the south coast at Chichester in late 2016. She spent a very short season sailing on the Norfolk Broads (her owner's home cruising ground) in 2017, and a further three weeks in July 2018, and she is now offered for sale due to a change of plans. With the price of a Secret 20 self build kit starting at just under £13,000, an estimated build time of some 1,500 hours, the additional cost of trailer, outboard, etc., and minimal ongoing maintenance thanks to the modern construction methods employed during her construction, "Ranworth Rose" represents great value for money for anyone looking for a small, traditionally styled, gaff cutter, Ideally suited to estuary cruising, and presented in as-new condition (having barely been used!) with a high quality finish throughout, she will surely turn heads where ever she goes!
