V 188 Tegra

Tegra is a modern, strip-planked version of Andrillot, but with a much larger, longer stepped coachroof and a snugger gaff cutter rig.



Tegra is a fine gaff-rigged Vertue.


Tegra is a very lucky boat!  She has just been bought by Brian Duff and is now based in the British Virgin Islands.
