Broker's Comments

This yacht is a very pretty classic that has latterly been rigged as a bermudan cutter. Originally, she was gaff rigged with a lifting keel.

She has lots of nice features and not unreasonable room below - if only sitting headroom.

She has been in the same ownership for ten years and has clearly been well loved and I am told, she sails beautifully.

The engine and gearbox have been rebuilt and serviced last year. The work completed is under guarentee until this summer.

Although built at Olivers Yard in Porthleven, she may be an East Coast design - anyone know ? If so, email me and I will update the details.

As always, I can provide high resolution photos on a CD by mail.

She was surveyed in 2004 and was given a very good report.

This is yet another classic yacht that Boatshed Falmouth is pleased to offer - and this one is perfect to get you into the whole classic yacht movement.

Currently lying in Falmouth.
