Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

This is a real classic sailing yacht. Designed for Admiralty sail training in the 1950's this is one of just six that were ever built. The Admiralty's requirements are plain to see and the current owner has dedicated many a long day to restoring this boat to its original boat builder's condition. The main work is complete with the owner estimating a further £10,000 (approx) of finishing work. The photos will show that she has all the right timbers and the varnish is freshly polished. Wide open teak laid decks with a sleak and slender profile, she will hold her own in a sea. There is a lovely seakindly cockpit that leads down to a very warm and homely saloon. The interior has a very proper feel with plenty of thoughtfully located storage areas and work surfaces.

All round a great piece of workmanship that is ready for another chapter. Will you help write it ......!
