"Propelled to notoriety by the writing of cruiser-authors Lin and Larry Pardey, the Bristol Channel Cutter has become synonymous with seaworthy passagemaker. Inspired by the 19th century working cutters of England's west coast, designer Lyle Hess wanted a heavy displacement vessel that could sail well with cargo and withstand the punishment of crossing oceans. Custom made of fiberglass with wood details, the 28-foot BCC has a long full keel, a large interior for extra provisions, and a loyal following among cruisers. "
