Broker's Comments

Built by Eversons of Woodbridge in 1932 this wonderfully restored Gaff Sloop Deben Cherub is now looking for some new owners.
No 8 of 18 she has a cream gloss hull and top sides with beautiful coach work and trims.
Great Yanmar engine and a very tidy cabin offering 2 berths and simple galley.
Trimmed for open water cruising she has recently enjoyed jaunts to the Isle of Wight and to the West Country.
List of all works carried out over the last few years. She has been very well maintained by her current owner.
A rare example of a classic 1930s gaffer.
Call us to arrange for an early viewing.
