In 1939 the growing demand for a 25ft. waterline cruising yacht capable of making really fast passages and of maintaining a crew of four in reasonable comfort was been met to a remarkable degree by Laurent Giles Brittany class. Here is a yacht not only able to deal competently with any weather likely to be met around the British coasts, but into whose every detail of design, construction and equipment has gone a wealth of hard-won experience to an extent that puts her in a class by herself. The efficiency of the snug bermudan sloop rig, the art and genius of the designer portrayed in the lines, and the specialised cleverness of the accommodation layout, all these proclaim the boat a thoroughbred.

The original of the class Bettine was designed a season earlier to meet the requirements of Colonel Derby. She proved so successful that nineteen sister ships have since been built. All follow the same lines as regards hull form but each is individual in the possession of some feature peculiar to herself and provided to meet the special requirement or inclination on the part of the individual owner. Bettine was adapted from Giles previous 38’ Kayak design number 0029, a Giles Channel Class yacht – a foot longer on the waterline.
