Broker's Comments

This pretty little day boat will turn heads where ever she sails, only two built. In 1963 she won the won Cardigan Bay Trophy. She has been in current ownership since 2001 and sailed out of North Wales doing some local club racing. New sails would give her that edge for local racing and modern diesel would be a benefit, although owners currently use her sails to manoeuvre on & off her mooring.
If you are looking for a classic day sailer this pretty little boat is definately worth a view, gorgeous lines and coachroof. You could fit two pipe cots for adventures over night.
