Broker's Comments

A chance to own a piece of history, one of a pair of fishing vessels built in 1957 designed for spratt fishing and used mainly on the east coast up to the early 80's. Then left abandoned and picked-up by a yard (Douglas Boatyard, Preston, Lancs) and converted into the attractive ketch-rigged motor-sailor as seen today.

Roomy & tough with a classic wooden construction & finish, she is a pretty boat that is ideally suited for coastal cruising and/or liveaboard use. She is a head-turner wherever she goes.

Pictures taken Nov 2016.
