Electrical Systems

12 volt, 5 batteries charged by: engine


Construction Wood carvel
Underwater profile Long keel
Finish Paint finish

Solid construction throughout and all the finest timbers used as you would expect from a vessel constructed circa 1960's. She needs finishing off inside though there is plenty of space and she already has a homly feel to her and virtually all the expensive wood work has been done. She needs some sanding and varnishing, cushions, covers and a cooker. It seems some electric cables have been installed. Huge potential. WE HAVE A RECENT SURVEY FOR THIS VESSEL. Please ask for more information.

Broker's Comments

Though we don't know a lot about her we do know she was built circa 1960's and this vessel is an ideal project for someone. A full survey dated January 2004 is available. She sails extremely well; the engine runs and her lines are gorgeous. What's needed is to finish off a bit of woodwork, new upholstery and the electronics. I instantly fell in love the moment I saw her (hope Karen's not reading this!) and anyone else will too. View all the photographs to get the full story and then think about an offer as she needs to be sold. See "more photos" to view 36 internal and external photos of this vessel.
