Wooden Ships Comments on this 12′ Clinker Sailing Dinghy

12’ clinker sailing dinghy believed to have been built in 1981.

Major professional overhaul by the International Boatbuilding Training College, Lowestoft in 2014.

New rig professionally built for the boat to the plans for the International 12 sailing dinghy rig, including all varnished spruce spars.

Very attractive and well cared for dinghy that is kept indoors much of its life to protect the paint and varnish.  Used in present ownership for the youngsters to learn to sail with, she is a fast yet forgiving boat which will turn heads everywhere.

A complete boat with trailer and cover, ready to go sailing this summer.
