Broker's Comments

A lovely old girl built by the iconic Hillyard Yard in 1948. Your chance to buy a piece of history and have a great boat as well.
Fast hull design in its time with gorgeous timber everywhere.
She has a fantastic feel down below and you can't help just looking at her.
Yes she is a bit tired on the surface but then no one buys a wooden boat to just sit there and wait for the paint to dry!
She is nicely sited on a marina berth for easy access so call me to arrange an early viewing.
