There are a few of these little 5 tonners about and they are very pretty looking boats. They sail very well with the bow sprit and bumpkin extending the useable sail area very well. This boat has had all necessary maintenance over recent years including a new coachroof. She has an interesting history, having been hijacked from Jamaica by Cuban refugees before being brought back to Portsmouth in the 1960's and given a new lease of life. If you are in the market for a classic cruiser at a good price this is it!
