Wooden Ships Comments on this Gaff Yawl
Known as a Sea Otter 25 Canoe Yawl, the design was inspired by the Clyde Canoe Club Yawl with increased freeboard and a little more sheer. Built by David Moss and launched in 2002 for the present owner, she has been cruised extensively and proven herself as a very capable boat and incredibly easy to handle.
The quality of the original build and the current finish are second to none, she is an immaculate little yacht which will make any new owner incredibly proud.
