I remember that Small Craft, Blockley had a connection with Lloyd Loom Lusty of wicker type chair fame and I think the boss was Geoff Lusty. I am trying to remember the names of the boats they built and will re-post if my mind churns it out.
I think that the boat in question could well be the PRIVATEER. This was meant to resemble a 'boat of charcter' and it had a sort of clipper bow (and a short bowsprit. I think). It was offered either as Gaff or as Bermudan. I also seem to remember that there is a website somewhere. Try doing a search on "privateer+sailing"
