NOTES: 'Fey Loong' (or 'Fei Lung'), meaning Flying Dragon, was designed by the architect for himself, could accommodate 6-8 persons and would be rigged with his new invention called Wingsails - a rigid sail design. A prototype catamaran with Wingsails was shown at the Britain Can Make It exhibition in 1946 but no commercial production ever followed. The 30-foor yawl 'Fey Loong' was built to a smaller specification than illustrated here and launched in 1954.
