Broker's Comments

Mr Hillyard's yachts were built to last! Here we have one of two that were built in 1936 to shark fish out of Falmouth. After a successful working life, she returned to the Hillyard boat-yard in the early '70's to be reborn as a 36ft ketch rigged motor sailor. Her owner reports that she is stiff, sea-kindly and sails well, despite her motor sailor tag. Below decks she oozes traditional character but even better she is clean, warm, dry and very well presented and has a good and recent survey. She would make a good live-aboard.
