This boat has been owned by the current owner for approximately 8 years.
The boat has recently been ashore for maintenance works having been re-launched at the end of May 2017.
This is without a doubt a classic wooden ketch that has been nurtured by the vendor during his ownership.
Unfortunately the photographs do not really do it justice and viewing is highly recommended.
