Broker's Comments

Offered in excellent condition with barely a mark to be seen this delightful bilge keel sailor is a modern classic to behold.
She comes complete with sails, rigging etc and a road trailer.
The engine was fully reconditioned in 2005 and has done very little hours since.
A stunning looking boat that is easy to sail and will happily sit on a dry mooring
The Manx Gaffers were built by CL Sailboats who were in Ramsbottom near Bury in Lancashire.
Designed by Mike Rimmer after the cod and herring fishing boats used by fishermen of the isle of Man in days gone by.
They are heavily constructed clinker effect, GRP hand laid hulls.and topsides.
