Celandine and very practical cruising yacht , very good sailing capability. Just two owners in her life. Present owner a keen sailor had the topmast added to her and also put length into her bowsprit. She handles well and is found to be very sea kindly.
The helm was originally a wheel steering which has been kept but the present owner wanted a tiller control.
Deep open aft cockpit clear view forward and off the very generously proportioned side decks..
Traditionally ketch rig with mast hoops, slab reefing. A full wardrobe of sails.High field backstay levers – Admiralty bronze fittings and fastenings.
