This very attractive pond yacht was made by Alexander of Preston.
She has been sailed so there are some marks on the hull most notably at the bow. The varnish below the waterline is original but the blue paintwork appears to be more recent.
All of the deck fittings are present and original including the sheet horses and the braine steering. The deck has its original varnish and plank lines.
The rig is all original. The spars have their original paint but there are a few chips. The sails are in good condition for their age with no holes or tears. There are some water stains and there is some paint on the jib.
All the hooks and bowsies are original but some of the rigging has been renewed.
Alexanders of this condition are becoming more and more difficult to find and appear to be increasing in value.
The stand is included in the sale.
