Broker's Comments

This is a fantastic classic boat, lots of lovely varnished wood and full of warmth and character. Constructed by a very well respected builder and much sought after design. She is great for the river, but is also a great sea boat. Full of charm and character with some lovely touches such as the brass bilge pump and the engine controls.
A great opportuntiy to own a timeless classic at a very affordable price.
