Wooden Ships Comments on this 13′ Cove’s launch

Clinker launch designed and built by Coves of Salcombe in 1948.  Refitted for the present owners by a local shipwright approximately eight years ago with all new gunnels, fore and aft decks and new thwarts.  The hull is largely original and in very sound condition.

She comes complete with a full set of thwart cushions, an all over boat cover and a trolley.

The boat has been very lightly used in recent years and the engine has very few hours on it.

This immaculate little launch is in superb condition and is a very complete package ready to go.
