Broker's Comments

This Clinker built launch is a real beauty. The traditional build is a joy to see. This one was specified by the original owner to be a foot wider on the beam and 2'6" on the length, this gives her more stability.
So you will have a beautifully built, inshore sea boat, perfect for fishing or pottering around, and will turn heads wherever she goes.
