Since 2003 I am a proud owner of a Jaguar 25.
The Jaguar 25 was built by the shipyard Canvey. The shipyard is located east of London on Canvey Island at the Thames. In the late 70’s to mid 80’s here the various Jaguar models were produced. The smallest was the Jaguar 21, the 28 was the largest. The Jaguar 25 was built in three variants: as a swing keel, a twin keel and a fixed keel.
The draft of 1976 was developed by Frank Butler, founder of Catalina Yachts, California, USA. Here the boat was build with the name “Catalina25”. One year later the boat was then built with the name Jaguar 25 under license from “Canvey Yacht Builders’ almost 1,000 times.
