This yacht was produced in the 1920's  by Hobbies of Dereham. 

Remarkably, not only has she survived in original condition but so has her box.

She was made from solid pine with a separate deck and has her original green and black livery. There is some paint loss but the overall condition is surprising as she is around a hundred years old. The deck is painted, with deck lines and the Hobbies paper badge is still attached.

There is a little rust along the keel joint. The keel has some paint loss as has the rudder.

The rig is in very good original order. The sails are original with some rust stains one of which has created a hole.  All the spars are original. The mast does not have any shrouds and as a consequence is not particularly rigid.

The box is wonderful with all its original advertising. However, although complete it does have some damage at one end and quite a lot of "scuffing" 

It is astonising to find a yacht such as this in original condition

She is a real collectors item.
