Broker's Comments

Built for Mr Humphrey Barton as his cruising home in 1963, she was extensively cruised under his hand for 17 years including numerous trans-atlantic crossings.
Renowned for her sea-kindliness, balance and ease of handling, Hum noted during her maiden voyage from Lowestoft to Nieuwe Waterweg that she sailed herself with no more than a line on the tiller!
She is largely unmodified from her original design apart from the construction of the quarter berth and the furling genoa.
A real slice of history and a rare opportunity to own a truly superb pedigree blue-water cruising yacht.
