Broker's Comments

A long lost Fairey Albacore designed and built by the legendary Sir Richard Fairey and Mr Chichester-Smith. She needs some restoration work but would be a very worthwhile project to restore this classic sailing dinghy. Currently dry stored, she comes with some sails but the standing and running rigging needs replacing.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
