The "Norfolk" range of pond yachts was made by Hobbies of Dereham. Until now we had only seen models around 12 to 22 inches. This yacht is 36 inches overall a size we did not know was ever made.
Although she has been sailed she is in stunning condition for her age.
She has her original black paintwork above the waterline and red below. The paintwork is in very good condition with just a few marks. There is a little paintloss at the keel hull joint. The Norfolk transfers are in good order with just a couple of marks.
The deck has its original varnish with plank lines drawn on it. There is a small repair at the stern. There is a faux hatch.
The rig is in very good order. The sails are original with a few stains but no holes or tears. Some of the rigging has been renewed but all the hooks and bowsies are original.
This is a very rare and decorative yacht in wonderful condition for her age.
Due to her rarity and originality she is exceptionally collectable.
The stand may be later than the yacht but is included in the sale.
