This Triang pond yacht was made by Lines Bros between 1954 and 1959.
The C20 was one of a range of tinplate yachts which were remarkable for the standard of construction and the wonderful hull shape.There is some paint loss on the bottom of the keel which suggests that she has been sailed but she is still in really good condition for her age.
The original paintwork of cream with a blue stripe does have a few paint chips. However, as you can see in the photographs, for this age of yacht the paintwork is remarkable. The deck, its fittings and cabin top are all original and in very good order. The Triang deck transfer does have a little damage.
The rig is all original but the sails are a little scruffy with some damage at the head of the mainsail and on the leech of the jib. The spars and the fittings are all original.
This yacht is being offered for sale as a decorative antique as the condition of the sails and the seized rudder would stop her from being sailed again.
The stand is not original but is offered with the yacht if required.
