Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A really pretty and distinctive lady. These vessels were designed to work as tenders to the square riggers waiting at Falmouth for orders although this vessel was fitted out as a yacht from the outset. She has been really professionally restored and well maintained by her careful owners. The interior compliments her exterior perfectly and the expertise in her fit out provides amazing accommodation for a boat of this size. Nav station, galley, heads and 6 berths in two cabins!
Due to their sea kindly design, heavy displacement and well designed rig, several quay punts have made long passages including world wide trips.

This R.S. Burt Falmouth Quay Punt has been personally photographed and viewed by Suzzanne McDonald of Boatshed Medway. Click here for contact details.
