Wooden Ships Comments

Danish built fishing vessel, converted to a gaff ketch yacht in previous ownership and cruised extensively.  During the conversion a new interior and rig were fitted along with a new Cummins diesel.

Since that time she has been largely neglected and is now in a poor state and needing a thorough refit.  Professional survey carried out in 2018, the findings of which are available to potential purchasers.

This boat is now a significant project but she is a very pretty hull with a superb engine and well balanced rig so once the hull and decks have been repaired as necessary she will make a fine cruising vessel once again.
