Broker's Comments

We are pleased to be presenting this attactive Falmouth Bass Boat, a traditional day sailer with a lifting keel and rudder.

Ideal for exploring the rivers and creeks of the UK coastline or Norfolk Broads. The strong bilge keels ensure she remains upright, if kept on a drying mooring.

With internal watertight storage lockers and plenty of space for seating 5, and also set up for single handed sailing. The boat is easily de-rigged by one person and the mast lies neatly inside the boat for when transporting on the trailer. It also comes with a recently serviced outboard engine, a new set of sails, a winter cover and trailer.

If you would like any further information, or to arrange a personal viewing, then please contact our office and we would be pleased to help.

Her strong bilge keels ensure she remains upright if kept on a drying mooring.
