Broker's Comments

What a piece of history! Steeped in tradition, this lovely gentleman's cruiser is everything a Dunkirk Little Ship should be. I think the current owner says it all: "It is quite simple for me. If it was not for these 'Little Ships' saving the soldiers, we would be speaking German and there is no point in owning a 'Little Ship' if you can't get the veterans on board and celebrate their achievement in time of disaster. They turned defeat into victory and I am the proud custodian of a piece of British history. We have no choice with the veterans. They will die. We have an easier choice with the 'Little Ships' because we can save them."

The current owner has lavished much care and put in many hours of toil over the last 14 years. Why's he selling? He's bought another Dunkirk Little Ship, of course!

Down below, she's comfortable, spacious, warm and welcoming - a real home from home. The interior needs a little cosmetic finishing and the external woodwork needs some dabs of varnish here and there, but other than that she's ready to continue her cruising life or would make a great liveaboard.

The new owner will be able to join the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships and take part in their events, including a return to Dunkirk every five years.
