Broker's Comments

This classic styled "Old Gaffer" gives all the joys of traditional sailing without the pitfalls and headaches associated with wooden hulled boats.
Fastidiously maintained by her current owner over the last 16 years, the varnish work and teak deck around the cockpit are a joy to behold.

She is a veteran of many campaigns and has travelled from the Netherlands to North and South Brittany.

Don't bother asking if she has air-conditioning, she is kitted out with "back-to-basics" as the watch word. Cosy is the best way to descibe her cabin and the cover over the heads cleverly doubles as the chart table.
