Broker's Comments

There is something about the beautiful classic lines of this clipper that inspires a passion to simply want to go & sail her!

Now its fair to say that after standing for a while that this example is in need of a little TLC, some finishing touches here & there & also perhaps some electronic aids if you're looking for some extended cruising. As far as the sailing is concerned though, she is very capable & ready to go.
Located in south Suffolk, if you're looking for something a little different then give Boatshed Suffolk a call, a viewing is well recommended.
