Several  hundred of these little cruisers were built over the years upto the early 1960’s, different sizes and weights, all found to be very comfortable sea boats safe and strongly built, popular with the experienced yachtsman and beginner’s alike….. This example was transported west from the East Coast, a while back and since being there she has been extensively restored. The boat is now presented in a very clean , dry and tidy condition. She is kept on a drying berth.

In 2012 she was fitted with a single cylinder 8hp Yanmar diesel engine. She has the navigation lights to make a night passage possible. A full suit of sails, includes a brand new main sail.
