Broker's Comments

This fine and unique sailing yacht was built to a very high standard - to be rugged and dependable as well as exceptionally good looking - by renowned Norfolk yard Eastwood Whelpton for the owners' own use.

Although built in 1985, it was only in commission for about 8 weeks every year. When not in commission she has been kept in a shed ashore, hence is in exceptional condition.

This lovely traditional seagoing yacht will provide anything from family coastal sailing holidays to serious blue-water passage-making.
