Peridot is a beautiful example of a SOUTH COAST ONE DESIGN (SCOD). SCODs are offshore cruisers/racers designed by Camper and Nicholson and built in the 50s and 60s. They are constructed from Mahogany on oak frames, 26 ft long with a long iron keel. They are very tight and stable yachts with an excellent sailing performance.
Peridot is one of the few SCODs to be built by the Camper and Nicholson yard with a high spec including stainless steel stanchions, pushpit and pulpit. She was built in 1961 and is SCOD no 68. In total over 100 SCODs were built in the 50s and 60s. There is an active SCOD owners club and class racing at Cowes.
