Broker's Comments

Nice little boat this, sadly she has come on to the market after her owner passed away.

I had to actually measure her – when I first saw her she looked larger than 16 feet, but no, 16 feet she is!

A pretty little gaffer, not a great deal of money, no complicated electrics, she hasn’t even got an engine, but she is fitted with a bracket for an outboard.

Come along and have a look – you may well find yourself sailing at next year’s “Old Gaffers” rally at Yarmouth.

I should point out at this stage that all her paperwork has gone missing, the owner’s widow has searched high and low but suspects it may have been disposed of in error. We do have a letter from the family solicitor gifting the yacht to the current owners, this can be produced for inspection at the appropriate time.

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