Remarks:

Purchased by the current owner some 10 years ago when she was then based at Plymouth on the south coast, this 18′ Flying Sloop classic half decker has since been sailed annually (with the exception of 2020/21) from a swinging mooring on Barton Broad. She is being sold, complete with a recent and very little used road trailer, due to lack of use (vendor has a second boat). A pretty and unusual little half decker from a world renowned designer and suited to both coastal and inland use.
