Broker's Comments

I don't know too much of the history of this boat, I believe she is a one-off built in essex on the Crouch in 1978. What I do know is that she is a sweet little boat, with good sails and engine, a good deep cockpit, so if you have kids they'll be pretty secure, and good accommodation inside, including a seperate heads. This is the ideal boat if you are looking for something with character which can be used for pottering around eustuaries and creeks. She has not got a formal survey but she was checked out by a surveyor a couple of months ago who pronounced her to be a sound boat. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris Allan of Boatshed Essex. Register or log in to see 32 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
