This childs pond yacht/dinghy dates from the 19th Century. It was carved from solid pitch pine giving a lovely wineglass hull shape. It has a long keel and lead ballast.

The green paintwork is original but very dull. 

There are marks showing she was fitted with a bowsprit and probably had a gaff or gunter rig.

She could be used as an ornament as she has an oak stand but she would also benefit from a restoration. The stand is not as old as the dinghy but is included in the sale if required.

This is a very rare opportunity as most of the yachts of this age have been lost in the mists of time.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
