Broker's Comments

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the legendary Folk Boat hardly needs any introduction from me! They must be one of the prettiest, seaworthy and responsive yachts ever designed; and certainly the best that I have ever had the priviledge to sail.
For those that don't know them - a race around the cans, a day sail to the Pembrokeshire Islands, a singlehanded Trans-Atlantic, she can do all of the above. She appears to have a sound hull and deck, she's pretty, and benefits from a recently installed engine - one that has never, in fact, been used. Buy a new engine and get a (almost) free Folk Boat!!
