Some details here of another UFO 34 to add to the list -
S/Y "HUSTLER" built 1977 - she has had that name since at least the early 1990's, when she was lying in Pwllheli. I bought her in Spring 2001, at that time she was in Southsea Marina. I sailed her round to the Med the same year and she has remained there ever since. I sail her for a few months every Summer, from her base in Halkoutsi, Greece.

For some time in the 1980's, I also owned the UFO 34 "FOREIGN EXCHANGE". I didn't like the name, so I renamed her "CUCKOO ROCK". I sold her at some time in the late 1980s

Hello Martin Lowsen.
Mahuri is still very much alive and well and living on the north coast of Ireland. Be good to hear about your journey of ownership with the boat.

Hi Mahuri owner, Did you know about her sailing and doing very well in the 79 two handed Azores Race. We really creamed that one. Also the 79 fastnet capsize and survival to finish 3rd in Class 4. Youu have a well sailed and very successful cruiser. She lives deep in my heart and especially how she came through the 79 Fastnet. Cheers, Martin Lowson.

Dear All

I'm now the 3rd owner (as of May 2022) of "Salamander of Kip" (registered in Glasgow) but bought in Grimsby and now berthed in Portishead (along with "Calcaria" another UFO 34). I've found a Times newspaper article dated 12 July 1977 that describes her win in the 3/4 Ton Cup race in west Scotland where she and her skipper beat off the contenders from Yorkshire (my home county) and I have a full set of original 1976 sails stamped with "1976 3/4 Ton Cup". She is still very much minimally laid out and in her race configuration, but I may have to slightly modernise her to make her the fast cruiser she can be. I'm amazed at her speed on all points of wind.
