Broker's Comments

If you are a red hot racing fanatic this classic wooden yacht is not for you, as the craftsmanship that was required to build her would not be of interest. However if you are a yachtsman that can appreciate the quality of her build and design as a robust little cruiser, with appealing looks this is the one for you. This yacht was built before the glass fibre tree, by craftsmen not accountants.
She offers 3 berths in a roomy open plan cabin. She is well looked after by her owner and a shipwright. A lot of work was carried out in 2011 including a new alternator fitted, the drop keel serviced, new electrics throughout, painted inside and out and antifouled.
She is only up for sale due to the owners other commitments.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
