Broker's Comments

This is a fine example of an early English Folkboat, built by Bussel & Co, Weymouth in 1958, for a Dr Whittaker who sailed in and around Weymouth Bay.

Carvel planked with a nice low profile coachroof gives her the sweet lines similar to the original Nordic boats.

Good accommodation and great sea-keeping, she's previously competed in the Folkboat week with some success.

She has had a lot of work carried out in recent years and is still undergoing some refurbishment - hence the price.

Cradle and bespoke trailer would be available by negotiation.

These boat details are subject to contract.
