Broker's Comments

What a delightful slice of nostalgia is this little beauty! I didn't think that anyone built small vessels with such care and craftsmanship this side of 1950. She is redolent of a bye-gone era when quality counted and the pace of life was slower, and of course, the sun always shone on the river! Summer dresses, straw hats, picnic hampers and fizz - that what she's about. A true gentleman's launch for lazy summer days on the river and a refreshing change from all the 'go-faster' French and American plastic clones that we see so much of these days.These boat details are subject to contract.
NOTE: The trailer shown on which the launch sits is NOT included in the sale, however, free delivery is offered throughout the UK mainland.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
