If you are interested in this boat I am happy to email you a complete inventory and more detailed photos and descriptions.

This little boat turns heads whoever she goes - even before you launch her! All the romance of a classic timber boat without the maintenance. She is easily towed and launched and sailed single handed - though a crew is helpful for rigging and more fun to enjoy the boat with.

She is a very firm and forgiving boat under sail but is no slouch in a good stiff breeze. I have clocked her at 6+ knots (over ground) on occasion. The Honda outboard is quiet and economical.

Reason for sale: I inherited this boat from my father (who had it built in the early 80's) and it was shipped out from England. I have had much pleasure from this boat but as my family has grown we have outgrown the boat and I am now the only one who is really interested and I have not been getting the use from her that she deserves. It is time for someone else to care for her and enjoy her.
