Broker's Comments

A true Classic small yacht with a fully justified reputation for seaworthiness. designed by Jeremy Rogers along the lines of the Folkboat but with improved accommodation. These boats have sucessfully completed circumnavigations and have also won major races.

This particular example is in exceptional condition for her age, reflecting her initial goood build quality, continued investement and maintenance by her owners and considerate use. These comments are reflected in the recent survey conducted in 2016.

A cradle is also available be separate negotiation.

Hi Tony
The mooring would be transferrable for the remainder of this year (boats have to come out of the water at the end of October). The moorings for next year would probably be available - unless there is a awaiting list in that particular part of the harbour. If you are interested I could contact the Boatyard to find out.
