Broker's Comments

The Gauntlets are boats with respected history. The class was originally designed in 1934, when the first of these famous yachts were built in the Berthon boatyard in Lymington, on the English south coast. In all, 39 Gauntlets were built by the yard between 1934 and 1951. The design was for a fast, seaworthy, comfortable boat, easily handled by a small crew. The current owner has the boat rigged for single-handed sailing. A Beautiful classic wooden yacht needing some repairs and improvements. Owned by her current owner since 2008 when he sailed her from Scotland, round the UK and on to Barcelona.
