Wooden Ships Comments on this Mallard sailing dinghy
The Mallard dinghy was designed by Andrew Wolstenholme and this one was built in 2012. She was started at the Lyme Regis boat building school but purchased before completion by the current owner who then engaged a professional to complete the build.
She appears to have been finished to a high standard with good boat building techniques employed and good quality materials from the Robbins Elite marine plywood to the cast bronze fittings.
Hardly used and in immaculate condition, she is on a trailer and ready to tow away this spring.
