Broker's Comments

Boatshed Lancashire are delighted to offer this piece of maritime history. She was built in 1938 by Berthons of Lymington number thirteen of sixteen. She has been in the same ownership for 63 years, yes that is correct she has been owned by the same family for 63 years. She has cruised many thousands of miles from the West Coast of France to the North of Scotland and unfortunately the time has come to let her go to another family that will hopefully look after her as she is has been accustomed to. For the last 20 years she has been stored undercover for 6 months of the year, professionally maintained each winter but sadly she has not had much use for the past 2 years. She also comes with a custom yard trailer that she spends her winters on. If you are looking for a piece of history then viewing is essential, you will not be disappointed.
