This yacht was made by Alexander of Preston but was most likely sold by Bassett Lowke.
She has the distinctive "red" varnish above the waterline which is associated with the "White Heather" range of yachts sold by Bassett Lowke.
This particular yacht has, not unusually for an Alexander, been sailed extensively. She has been painted below the waterline and overvarnished to protect her when sailing.
The hull is in good condition but does have some scratches and marks most notably on the bottom of the keel.
The deck is original with lovely mahogany kingplank and toerails.
There are a few scratches and a couple of areas of varnish loss. There is a repair to the deck at the stern.
The rig is original with all alloy spars. The hooks and bowsies are all original but the rigging has been renewed.
The sails are in good order with no holes or tears but they do have some staining. The mainsail has been reinforced at the edges and the cringles have been replaced.
Please have a good look at the photos as they give a good indication of the overall condition.
This is a very striking and attractive yacht by one of the foremost pond yacht manufacturers.
The stand is original and is included in the sale. However, it may need to be reinforced in the future due to the weight of the yacht.
