Broker's Comments

This looks a fantastic example of one of these beautiful, traditional gaff rigged yachts.

Kept ashore and under cover when not is use, on a tailor made trailer (included in her sale), she really does look in exemplary condition. After some searching, the worst I could find was a little wear on some of her side deck varnish - easily sorted!

She has a lovely, big, deep cockpit with bilge pump and has ample stowage in several watertight lockers for placing your belonging is dry safety.

Her engine is located in a well and easily at hand, should you wish to check her over - with very few running hours.

Her owner tells us that he can trailer, rig and launch her completely single handedly - all he needs is someone to hold her whilst he parks the car!

So if you're looking for a lovely, traditional looking boats for fun afloat and want to be able to launch her short handed and recover to the safety of your own property, then I'd heartily recommend an early look at her, near Shoreham By Sea.
