Broker's Comments




What a credit to British Boatbuilding. This Sea Otter Sailing boat is a classic design that turns heads & eyes. The "Wow" factor to the lover of wooden boats. The list is to endless to write here but she is a very solid boat with a good freeboard for a choopy sea. There is 210 sq.ft. of sail The builder has had a carving of the Otters head on the tiller. 16 mm Douglas Fir strip planks on the hull. Keel & Skeg of Solid Iroko.There was a review in "The Boatman" Aug. 96 & also "New Boat Review" Aug. 98. Even a roller coaster trailer thats never been in salt water is included.
*please note that the photo's are taken by flash due to very dark storgage*
