Broker's Comments

This elegant and individual Laurent Giles ketch is a very capable blue water cruiser and if desired, a comfortable live aboard for a couple.

Day to day maintenance has been whittled down to a minimum, however, there is plenty of bright work for the taking.

She is a heavy displacement, long keeler, so she will have a good, sea kindly hull. Her deep cockpit and coaming give a real sense of security.

She has been cruising Western Spain and Portugal and is now home in Falmouth.

Much of the yachts installations could be considered ready for renewal, however, I don't doubt she would carry on cruising in her current condition for many years to come.

After several years of enjoyable ownership she is now for sale and she will suit a Laurent Giles enthusiast who is prepared to lavish lots of love on her.

Classic yachts rarely come with better provenance and Boatshed Falmouth are very pleased to be handling her sale.

Currently lying in Falmouth.

Offers on the asking price will be considered.
