Wooden Ships Comments Purbrook 10 Clinker sailing dinghy
Built in 1946 by Chas A. Purbrook of Christchurch and known as the Purbrook 10. She was designed as a tender for a Gentlemans yacht capable of being sailed, rowed or sculled and as expected for a tender meant to grace the deck of a fine yacht, she is a very pretty boat.
With the present owner for about 15 years, there is a fair amount of history and paper work to go with the dinghy.
She is a complete package in nice condition and ready to be used this summer.
