A Classic Yacht Gentleman’s pleasure yacht along the lines of a working fishing vessel. She has a new diesel engine installed. Hull has been resplined, she has a new mizzen mast, much of her rigging and her sails by James Lawrence are new. Below the laid Pitch Pine decks she has basic facilities with a generous 6ft plus headroom. There are still modifications which could be carried out below decks. The dog house has been extended and made workable. She could sleep 6 persons. Her owner since carrying out much of the refit himself has done a fair amount of cruising on his own. She is very seakindly, “turning heads” when ever she made a stop over alongside. She has made an extended cruise up and down the Coast of France in search for her lost history. Much of this the owner carried out on his own with his ship. She has now been moved to London for a berth on the Thames, the plan is to take her cruising again for the summer, timetabled in is further restoration inside a Boat shed next Autumn 2015
