Cachalot is a gaff cutter built along similar lines to that of an East Coast smack. She was built as a private yacht by Robert Saunders of Folkstone between 1897 - 1900 and has a fascinating history. She is a Dunkirk Little Ship and was relaunched in 2017 following a major 10-year refit, ashore at the head of the River Deben, Suffolk.
