Broker's Comments

These are pretty boats, especially in wood, and pretty fast, too. I should know, I've been overtaken by plenty of them (though perhaps that says more about my racing skills, or lack thereof). This example appears to be pretty sound, and has relatively recent sails and a new engine in 2013. The mast is brand new and awaits some new standing rigging fittings prior to being stepped. Given the cost of the recent major upgrades to sails, engine and spars, the asking price is a steal, so if you're in the market for a well-equipped wooden Folkboat, you're unlikely to do better than this one.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
