Broker's Comments

This boat has character by the bucket load just look at some of the brass fittings, teak decks and gleaming varnish work.
Her masts are easily stepped and then she would be perfect for inland waterways as well.

She is in need of some work before she could be sailed away. These include a hull scrub and anti foul, and there are a couple of soft spots in her wooden hull above the water line that need sorting. Treat her as an unfinished project and you have a lovely little boat.
