Remarks:

Owner’s remarks : “An opportunity to acquire Cowslip, one of the eleven Thurne Class 20 foot yachts built by Kingsley Farrington. Looks like a traditional Broads cruiser but has a GPR hull for ease of annual maintenance. Cowslip (T3) has been rigged back to the cockpit for single handed sailing. She benefits from an inboard Combi Saildrive motor, powered by rechargeable onboard batteries. Cowslip is a delight to sail or switch to the electric engine for quiet gentle cruising. The cabin has two berths or can be made up into a double bed. The original brown sails are still in place, look fantastic and are in good condition.”

A galvanised road trailer is also available to the vessel’s purchaser for an additional £500. The asking price of this vessel reflects the high value of the inboard electric propulsion system.

Currently lying ashore on her trailer.
