Cinderella IV cuddy

Cinderella IV has a cuddy cabin

Because Cinderella IV's owner liked to check in on the navigation from the helm cockpit and take shelter on a nights watch, he wanted a cuddy cabin for offshore passages.

"We liked the owner’s idea for a cuddy cabin," Tripp said. "We were already challenging him with a vertical bow, for reasons of sailing performance and to add more room below. With the cuddy request, we realised that having two cabins could function best by being vertical in form, and that this form could tie in through sailboat design all the way back to Bristol Cutters. We felt we had a package reflecting very classic boats (the 1890 Bloodhound, for example), yet entirely modern and ultimately practical. This has given Cinderella IV an unmistakable profile."
