This very attractive pond yacht was made by Alexander of Preston in the 1930's.
She is called White Foam and has a slightly fuller hull shape than the relatively more common Alexander fin and skeg design.
She is in original condition but has been sailed.
The paintwork is cream with a large blue coachline. It has crackled over the years to give an almost matt finish. There is a little sailing damage from on both the bow and the the stern. She has 2 lovely White Foam and scrollwork transfers on the bows.
The deck is also painted cream with mahogany toerails. All the deck fittings are original and in good, although tarnished, condition. The braine steering has its original spring.
The rig is in really good condition. The spars are original, but tarnished, as are the hooks and bowsies. The sails are original and in really good condition for their age. There is one small hole in the jib and a line of small holes in the main. There is some foxing.
Overall this yacht is in wonderful condition for her age and is full of character.
She has her original John Alexander stand which shows her at her best.
A real collectors item from this top class manufacturer.
Please note that she comes with, what appears to be, her original box. However it is in poor condition but is included in the sale if required.
