The hull shape of this yacht suggests that she was made just after the First World War or early 1920's.

She appears to have been carved from solid and fitted with a separate deck. She has some lovely lines with an integrated rudder. The paintwork is reasonable for its age but there is some paint loss on the ballast.

The deck has drawn plank lines and an upstand on the deck edge. There are a number of lovely deck fitting including fairleads, an anchor, and a faux cabin top. These are unusual for a yacht of this era so may be later additions.

The rig is in need of attention. The sails are poor and can only be used as templates. The mast, boom, bowsprit and gaff are original and have some good fittings. The rigging has some original blocks but is a tangle and the yacht will need to be completely rerigged.

If you would like further details or photos of particular areas of the yacht please do not hesitate to ask.

The stand is mahoghany and appears to be original. It suits the yacht well and is included in the sale.

Restoration of this yacht would be very worthwhile as she has a lovely hull shape.
