FOXHOUND’s design was born of a collaboration between Nigel Irens and Ed Burnett – easy lines and a heavy displacement hull by modern standards yet with sufficient sail area to yield exciting performance and as an exceptional cruising boat – not to mention unmistakeable good looks with maybe just that hint of Laurent Giles and Harrison Butler.
