Broker's Comments

Here's a 'proper little ship' that could take the competent and adventurous sailor anywhere where there is sufficient water to sail. A handsome design to please the eye and rugged construction from a quality builder in the days when GRP was still something of a novelty but traditional boat building skills were still in abundance These long keeled designs were prized for sea keeping performance in the days when sailors sailed in preference to spending the season entertaining friends in the marina . No concessions to comforts like heating, showers or hot water certainly, but a hull, keel and rig as 'bomb proof' as they come.
