"After more than four years on the water, we still have not seen a better cat than the St Francis 50. If I have to change, I will go for a new St Francis 50 definitely."

-Robert-Louis Kuhn

-Ian Clarke

"Thank's again for building the best boat on the market today."

-Steven Carroll



"One last word about our St Francis which we are renaming Skabenga; We love it!! Even at this age it is in excellent condtion. We are always remarking about the quality in the construction and in the thoughtful design. We are truly ecstatic and can't wait to begin our adventure."

-Aimee Higgins


Swinging on a Star

"We used extensive market research, test sails, and a 500 point, build quality checklist to make our decision. In the end, there were the other boats, and there was the [St] Francis."

"It is nice to own a boat from a builder who listens to the clients. This is rare in the world and particularly rare in the boat world."

-Randy Abernethy



"Duncan you rock! This is good news, thank you so much for your time and effort in responding. Not only are the St Francis cats great seaworthy circumnavigators, but the service and accessibility an owner has to you is unprecedented in the industry. I truly appreciate it."




"When we arrived at the South African yard, we began a boat honeymoon I'll never forget: While combing through the boat for mistakes or possible corrections, we returned each night to a waterfront villa with friendly owners. We never did find mistakes or need corrections - Scud was magnificent. In addition, the charm, humour, and hosting qualities of Duncan and his lovely wife, Kathy, followed by our virgin passage around the Cape (which Duncan navigated), completed a truly, perfect new-boat-purchase adventure."

-Tina Dreffin
