Wooden Ships Comments on this Paul Gartside Skylark

Professionally built in 2018 to the Paul Gartside Skylark design.  A pretty lug rigged dinghy, complete with trailer and cover, perfect for messing about on the water.

In superb condition, she has been used only a handful of times and stored undercover since new.

She was built on the Boat Building training course at Lyme Regis and has been finished to a high standard as would be expected.

Smart condition, on her trailer and ready to tow away for fun afloat this summer.
