Broker's Comments

This Classic Wooden Sloop was designed by Norman E Dallimore of Burnham on Crouch. He designed her as a fast cruising yacht and in his notes described her as “a medium displacement cutter or sloop with a 27ft waterline and a draft limited to 5ft 9" making her suitable for most waters”. It seems a bit of an understatement when you see the beautiful classic lines of the hull.
Not only is the boat pretty to look at she has been refitted in the past 18 months to a very good standard. The owner has made sure a thorough job was done; from completely rewiring the boat, refitting much of the interior and an engine rebuild. On top of this she has a new set of sails and looks pristine throughout.
