These pocket sized, practical motor sailers are strongly built, seaworthy and were approved by the White Fish Authority.
This example, with canoe stern & strong protective wheelhouse, was custom fitted locally for a Naval Officer who has enjoyed sailing her regularly for nearly 45 years. She has been lifted out of the water every winter to be stored undercover and be professionally maintained at a local shipyard.
She may feel basic by modern standards, but this safe, seaworthy vessel that was 'built to last' has stood the test of time well and I'm sure will offer her new owners many more years of pleasure.
Great for weekend sailing / fishing or having fun with the kids. A traditional favourite looking for new seafarers, this would also make a great starter boat.
