Remarks:

A delightful little half decker! She is easily single handed, has been professionally maintained throughout the current ownership (since 2017), and is being sold complete with road trailer and recent electric motor. The vendor advises that the motor and charging system are a delight to use, both in terms of their silent operation and also their function, with a single charge easily giving four hours motoring. Currently lying ashore on her trailer, and now offered for sale due to the passing of time. A great little boat and much admired!
