This 1930's Alexander has the long keel hull design and is one of a range of yachts produced by them for Bassett-Lowke. 

This yacht has been sailed so there are a few marks and stains on the hull. Also, although the colour scheme of cream and red is correct it has been overpainted at some point.

The deck is lovely with its original varnish. The toerail is original and complete. All the deck fittings are original and in good order.

The mast and boom are original but the jib boom may have been replaced. The mast is jointed in two pieces which is unusual for this size of yacht. It may have done if the mast was damaged whilst sailing.

Not unusually for a yacht which has been sailed some of the rigging has been renewed. The sails are in really good condition with just a few stains. They are made of the characteristic blue stripped material of the 1930's.

However, they may benefit from a careful clean.

The stand is not as old as the yacht but is included in the sale if required.

Also included is the yachts original sailing leash.

Whichever design Alexander use you are guaranteed a wonderful hull shape.

A very collectable "as sailed" yacht with loads of character.
