The Gull was originally designed by Ian Proctor in 1956, starting life as a frameless, double-chine plywood boat. Since the 1950's it has been through several incarnations: the wooden Mark I, GRP Mark III, GRP Gull Spirit and GRP Gull Calypso. Today it is popular with sailing schools, especially in the UK. This sail combination - main, jib and spinnaker - has remained fairly similar to this day, the only minor change to have happened was a different designed jib that sweeps the deck.

The Gull has a reputation as a safe and stable boat but, particularly with the addition of a spinnaker, it is raced competitively. It is classed as a two-person boat but can easily be launched, sailed and recovered single-handed, making it a suitable cruising boat for the solo sailor. It can easily be rowed (with the addition of rowlocks) and can be fitted with an outboard engine. Hence, it is a very versatile boat.

The Gull is a great boat to sail. It was built mainly for training purposes, therefore it is easy and fun to sail. It is a very safe and capable sea boat.
