Broker's Comments

Folkboats are well known for their sea keeping qualities and turn of speed and this Varne Folkboat is typically as capable as much larger vessels. The GRP hull means less maintenance and more headroom than her wooden sisters. This yacht is now out of the water in easily accessable winter storage ashore prior to re-launch booked for early March. This is a great time to inspect this boat.
