Remarks:

This replica Edwardian slipper launch is understood to be in good condition throughout, having been owned, maintained and serviced annually by the original owner/builder since new. Featuring a traditional single cockpit design, and of course that distinctive ‘Slipper’ sloping stern, this attractive craft would grace almost any inland waterway, lake or river – River Thames, Cam, Ouse, Lake District, Norfolk Broads, etc. – and with her GRP hull, she is lighter than an original wooden Slipper (and requires much less maintenance!), making her quite trailerable too. See the vendor’s photos for potential cruising ideas!

Please note: Photos 1-6 inclusive show the vessel in France in 2007.

DELIVERY: Delivery of the vessel in exchange for costs incurred (fuel, lift on/off trailer, etc.) may be possible subject to negotiation.
