Broker's Comments

This little classic has had one owner for the last thirty years! Built by a proper boat builder, Richard Dadson, in 1974 she is a one off, based on the yard's sailing yachts. She was built for Dadson himself and after 5 summer's enjoyment she passed into her current ownership. She was built and maintained to the highest standards and her recent (and previous) survey(s) found no sign of rot or decay anywhere in her timbers. Her motor is immaculate and in this ownership she has cruised the length and breadth of the South Wales coast, Bristol Channel and Irish Republic, including the inland waters of Gloucester and Ireland.
She is only for sale due to her owner's advancing years. Copies of builder's details and surveys held on file at Boatshed Wales.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
