Broker's Comments

If you are in the market for a classic boat I would urge you to have a look at this boat. Owned and improved by a master shipwright owner, she is ready to go anywhere and needs nothing except a pair of batteries. Not even any varnishing!

The boat was originally built in Norway to a very pretty William Atkin design, commissioned by a gentleman in Bermuda and sailed over there for a high quality interior fit out with Bermudan cedar.

The current owner who is a master shipwright, bought the boat in 2009 and has improved the overall condition to ensure a completely water tight vessel with restored decks and coach roof.

The boat is for sale due to the owner's lack of time caused by a couple of small children! Marihona is one of the most sorted classic sailing boats I have had for sale and is ready to sail anywhere.
