Broker's Comments

"A dinghy with a lid - a proper little seagoing yacht" both descriptions have been used to describe the little Silhoutte. In fact, I remember back in the fifties when she appeared under review in my parent's Sunday Express; I think she was descibed as a family cruising yacht, and ownership seemed like an impossible dream back then. How times change! Our example is sound, well presented if a little bare below decks, and ready to launch. A well known adage is 'smaller the boat, bigger the fun' - I rather favour the description of 'dinghy with a lid' these days, but with the addition of a couple of bits and pieces you could still 'live the dream' today!
