Jester was built in 1938 by the famous Portsmouth builder Harry Feltham. She is constructed of mahogany on rock elm frames with copper fastenings. She has a lifting steel keel which is housed in a polished teak casing.  

Jester was designed by Tommy Tanner who went on to start the department of aeronautics at Southampton University. He designed several yachts in his time. Several old pictures of Jester are available including the original line drawing. The original performance figures of the Stuart Turner engine are also available.

Jester is a delightful boat for comfortable day sailing. She has two berths - one on either side of the engine/centerboard casing. Jester is equipped with a fresh water tank but no heads or galley. She is fully electrified with navigation and anchor lights, power for VHF radio and fitted aerial. Depth and log information is provided by the latest electronic ultra sonic equipment by Echopilot. 

The engine is a Stuart Turner single cylinder 2 stroke petrol engine fitted with a Dynostart providing both a charging system and electric starting
