Broker's Comments

This traditional style Essex Smack has a GRP hull. The hull is from a mould taken of an original 1932 wooden Essex Smack designed by J W Suttlewood. Professionally built, the hull was moulded by International Marine Design and the decks and fit out were by Martham Boatbuilding of Norfolk. The decks and superstructure are mainly Iroko.
The accommodation and headroom are good for a yacht of this style she has room to sleep 4 comfortably with a double in the forward cabin and two good sized quarter berths in the main cabin. The separate heads has a sea toilet, hand basin and shower.

I must say she is a lovely yacht the build quality is excellent; a real beauty inside and out - take a look at the photos and other details above.
