Broker's Comments

The Folksong 25 is a classic long keel cruiser based on the Folkboat but built in GRP. Ideal for single handed sailing, she is an easy to hande yacht that will hold a course with little if any weather helm.
The yacht has classic lines and excellent sailing qualities. She also has a narrow beam and limited headroom, not a floating caravan by any streach of the imagination!
This yacht is in very well maintianed condition.
These boat details are subject to contract.
