Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. I'm not certain where to start with this boat, there is so much to tell. Buying her is buying a fantastic sailing boat, with comfortable accommodation, but as important you are buying a little piece of history. Starting life as a fishing boat out of St Ives, she has been an oyster dredger, possibly was involved in the rescue at Dunkirk, a family cruiser, a home and also a film star. She underwent a complete refit, two years ago - pictures available - and had a detailed survey, which found she needed some flares and a first-aid kit. As you can see from the photographs there is a little bit of work to complete, but apart from this she is ready to sail.
