Broker's Comments

This is a very pretty little centre board sloop by Buchanan. Perfect for weekending. The lifting plate will allow exploration of uncharted creeks.

She has been in the same ownership for some 11 years and now needs a new home.

Although you could have a season or two, pottering in the traditional style, she is ready for an enthusiastic DIYer to take her under their wing.

She is an East Coast boat and would be very much at home on the Broads.

They don't make them like this any more and she deserves to be kept in use.

Her proper description is a Buchanan 4 Ton Holliwell class yacht.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
