Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

'This Morecambe Bay Prawner is a modern replica of a classic gaff rigged cutter. She has a fibre glass hull based on the famous working boat 'The Sir William Priestly', with wooden decks and coachroof, sheathed in fiberglass from new. Her rigging is authentic with African Sapele Blocks and tackle. Gaff rigged with a topsail, staysail and Jib flown from the end of a 10-foot bow sprit. With single line reefing, furling foresails and tiller pilot she can comfortably be sailed single handed. She needs a good paint job, but if you are looking for a classic working boat without the maintenance of a wooden hull, this may be for you.'
