Broker's Comments

Because of the owner's long term illness, this boat has been ashore and under tarpaulin for a good five years. The rudder and a sail have been stored in the saloon.

The Yanmar engine used to run, but like the rigging, needs a thorough overhaul. The hull seems sound and, apart from peeling paint, the topsides also.

This is a project boat that sits on a large towable trailer.

These boats are not complicated and are a delight to sail. This is the opportunity to acquire a traditional small gaff and have a lot of fun restoring her and getting her back onto the water where she belongs.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
