Remarks:

This very pretty day sailer is thought to be of Swedish origin and is understood to be in lovely condition throughout having been completely rebuilt by a previous owner (a retired professional shipwright) to an extremely high standard, and very lightly used since. The rebuild included renewal of the decks and sub-structure, new keel bolts and other centre line fastenings, new standing and running rigging, new sails and a complete cosmetic refit. She offers an open cockpit, with small cuddy coachroof forward offering weather protection for gear and crew, and the potential for ‘camping’ onboard overnight under cover. Easily handled under sail, she comes complete with an as-new road trailer and is easily towed behind a modest family car. This opens up countless opportunities to sail whenever and where ever, both in the UK and abroad, as well as potentially reducing winter storage costs should space at home allow. Delightful!
