This Bristol Channel Cutter is one of the first boats built by the Sam L. Morse with the hull laid up in 1977 and completed in 1983. She was completed by the master shipwright at the Sam L. Morse Company. The BCC is a classic fiberglass pilot cutter based on the beautiful wooden cutters that Lyle Hess designed for Lin and Larry Pardey. There are so many sailors in love with a very few channel cutters. You probably already know that the Bristol Channel Cutter is a proven offshore capable voyager. You might know we owned two of them at the same time and we’ve sold 132 of them over the past 20 years.

Our current offering "Mon Desir" is special. The Bristol Channel Cutter is designed to be easy and safe to sail single-handed or easily by a couple. You must remember that this was one of the first BCCs completed back in the early ‘80s. At that time Lyle Hess was active and Lin and Larry Pardey had already been sailing a long time on Serraffyn and Taliesin.

The story is that Mon Desir was in a BCC Rendezvous race in the early 80s and she was amazingly super fast! She won! It turns out that Mon Desire was way faster than other BCCs. The reason why is that the mast is six inches forward of the location of the other BCCs. It was Larry Pardey who figured out why she was so fast. I believe it. When I bought my BCC in 1999 and visited the Sam L. Morse Company they all wanted to tell me about the mast and the rake and weather helm. It turns out that positioning the mast a bit forward is that the weather helm is much reduced and so she goes to weather with a lesser angle on the rudder. It’s a very good thing to know.

Mon Desir also has a deck stepped tabernacle mast which a few BCCs had at that time. We sold a 1981 sistership that lived on Mission Bay in CA under a bridge. To leave the harbor, the owner eased the rigging and tilted the mast forward to get under the bridge. It worked as we witnessed at sea trial! It’s also a good thing when you need to transport the boat by truck.

Regardless of the nuances of Mon Desir, you will appreciate the beauty of the design of this salty littlecutter. You will feel very secure sailing this vessel by yourself! The sail plan is divided in a true offshore cutter rig. All of the sails are small enough to be easily handled by one small person, like me. Don't be fooled! The total sail area of about 650 sq ft gives you driving performance in all conditions and lets you trim and set your sails so the boat will sail herself or let you steer with a finger on the tiller.

The current owner has enjoyed sailing locally in the Channel Islands for many years. He has maintained Mon Desir and took pains to do no harm and keep her pristine and beautiful. He’s done a good job. She is still a natural beauty with a gorgeous cozy interior with many special features.  

Great news! The standing rigging as well as running rigging were replaced in 2003 when the mast and boom were sanded and painted. The bulwarks are painted with epoxy paint which is a wonderful thing and she looks beautiful. The exterior teak trim is in good condition.
