ZOOM was the last yacht personally designed by Charles E. Nicholson, one of the foremost British yacht designers, as a favour to his friend Group Captain Teddy Haylock, Editor of 'Yachting World'.
The vessel's hull is close-planked in teak, with plank edges de-greased and glued together and fastened to laminated steam-bent English oak frames at 8" centres. This process was experimental and had not been tried in England before, but resulted in a very strong, durable and rigid hull.
Launched in 1952 and in constant use since then, she was bought by her current owner in 1994, with only three previous owners. The vessel has sailed to Spain several times, France, Ireland, Germany and the Baltic.
