Broker's Comments

Look past the dust and dirt that can be easily washed away and the running rigging that needs a good clean and you have a solidly built example of the famous Scandinavian Folk Boat. Their sea-keeping qualities are legendary as they were built for the Nordic waters. They have a large following with an active owners association. The engine started first time when I was onboard which is always a good omen! Throw in a good quality road and storage trailer, a nice inflatable tender and not to forget the Selden mast, spars and standing rigging that were all new in 2005 and you have a great little cruiser that will bring you many years of sailing fun.
