Wooden Ships Comments on this Aldeburgh Beach Boat

Believed to have been built by Frank Knights Boatyard, Woodbridge in 1974.

Known as an Aldeburgh beach boat, she was a working vessel most likely used for fishing the inshore waters of the Suffolk coast.  A generous beam, high freeboard and a flare to the bow are all signs she was built for open water work and make her a capable and safe family boat.

New 14hp Nanni engine fitted in 2022.  Recently serviced and ready for the summer.

A nice looking boat with an all paint finish giving her a work boat like feel, practical and useable but still elegant and eye catching.
