Summary of the Jaguar 21
The Jaguar 21, designed by
John Mullins, as was the 23, was built from 1978 to the late nineties. It
is rumoured that a company has bought the Jaguar name, & may start building
the 21 again (Walnut Boats).
It was available as a fin
or lift keel version. Most were the latter. The fin has a 4’ draft, &
both variants are competitive in club racing
The accommodation is open
plan with 4 berths, a decent galley forward of the port berth, & adequate
headroom. The keel case, in the lift keel variant, is not intrusive, &
does not restrict access to the forward berths. Storage is plentiful, under
the berths, with a chemical loo, forward, under the V berth.
The cockpit is well designed
for 4 adults, & there is easy access forward along the wide side decks.
The stern has a well for an outboard from 4 – 6hp.
The 21 has an easily managed
fractional rig, & is renowned for vice free performance, enabling both
racers, cruisers, & the inexperienced to get a lot of enjoyment.
Construction is conventional
mat, isophalic gel coats, balsa cored deck. The only thing to watch for
is the rubbing strake, which can sometimes detach.
