Recently refurbished professionally and in fine condition, this is your chance to enjoy all the advantages of sailing a beautiful example of a traditionally constructed auxiliary bermudan sloop. Originally built in 1926 by William King and Sons, Burnham on Crouch, she is a treasured classic that has been with the current owner since 1977.' and after her first short cruise she is on her mooring ready for the 2017 season.

Finished to a high standard, she is being well maintained and major restoration works have just been completed. Recent expenditure has exceeded £30,000 which included the replacement of old timbers, spars, deck & hull repairs and then finished with all the necessary re-painting & re-varnishing works. The current owner wishes to ensure this fine vessel cruises for many more years and therefore instigated the refurbishment works prior to sale and is therefore ,
THE PRESENT OWNER IS RETIRING FROM SAILING THIS SEASON AND INVITES ANY OFFERS . This cherished and admired classic yacht is now ashore for the autumn awaiting a new owner.
professional survey valuation of £36,000.

She was launched on 12th April 2017 and was ready for this seasons cruising... With a relatively full hull form and broad transom, she gives the impression of a much larger yacht, she would therefore make a most attractive family cruising yacht. Recent survey report available.This cherished and admired classic yacht is now ashore for the autumn awaiting a new owner to take her onto her hundredth year!
