he Beautiful Supanova 30 (1/2 ton class) racing /cruising Yacht.Designer Stephen Jones
.Boat name Casanova.
(internet information) I believe there were 4 boats built from the Supernova tooling, ‘Supernova’ herself being the first with a distinctive heavily cambered deck rather than a coach-roof . She was followed by ‘Casanova’ which had a conventional moulded coach-roof and iirc a masthead rig (she was at Poole Y C a few years back,Then came the best known ‘Smiffy’ which was 3/4 rig and had a revised stern for the ’78 Half Ton Cup in Poole, and finally ‘Demolition’ in 1981 when the HTC was again in Poole
.So a wonderful classic boat 1975 one of a kind, but full of extreme character.True British from a line of quality sailing /racing Yachts :Stephen Jones Stable.IRC handicap number of 0.93
