Designed / First built
1975

The Streaker dinghy was designed by Jack Holt in 1975 and was first launched in November of that year, since then it has been shown regularly at boat shows throughout the country. To help promote the class, the Streaker Class Owner's Association (SCOA) was formed in 1976, when class rules and RYA affiliation were obtained - the affairs of the SCOA are managed by an elected Committee of Streaker owners who are full members of the SCOA. Since 1976 the class has grown steadily and there are strong fleets nationwide, with sail numbers now fast approaching the 1630 mark and SCOA membership totalling more than 150, spread over at least 70 clubs in the UK. As part of the development of the class, the SCOA has been successful in bringing about many improvements including the introduction of an FRP version in 1998, this has subsequently proved very popular and 50% of all new boats are now built in this way. 2002 saw the transfer of copyright, technical control and ownership of FRP moulds from Jack Holt (Designs) Ltd. to the SCOA. This new level of self-determination meant the SCOA were able to issue Butler Boats with a license to build both FRP & Composite (FRP hull & Wood decks) Streakers and allow Ron Beasley to develop and supply greatly improved self-build kits.
