With the benefit of hindsight, it is clear that some of William Fife III's best designs were those built speculatively as ‘stock boats’; perhaps because they were purely what he thought was right, with no outside influence from a commissioning owner or the requirement to fit a rating rule. EVA is one of these yachts. Her sweet, ‘Britannia Ideal’, moderate displacement lines that make her such a delight to sail are simply what Fife, the master, believed an early 1900s racer/ cruiser should be, and perhaps what the coming International Rule boats could have been like. Professionally maintained since restoration in 2002, in recent seasons EVA has been a winner in the Mediterranean, most recently of the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez 2020 Rolex Trophy. She is very ready for more of the same.
