Challenger is a gaff rigged long keel pond yacht originally made in the 1920's or very early 1930's.
In recent years she has been fully restored and a lovely oak wall stand made to display her.
She has a wonderful wine glass shaped hull with a spoon bow and a long overhanging stern.
The hull has been repainted in what is likely to be her original colours of cream topsides and black below the waterline. There is some paint loss on the ballast, otherwise the paintwork is in really good order. There are 2 ivorine name plaques on the bows.
The deck has been revarnished and there are lovely plank lines.
The spars are all made from pitch pine. The hooks and rings appear to be original. The sails are beautifully made in modern sailcloth. There are a couple of small stains on the topsail and one on the mainsail.
The oak stand has been beautifully made and displays Challenger very well indeed. There are two brass wall hangers fitted.
She is a very attractive yacht from the heyday of pond yachts.
