Broker's Comments

This is a graceful yacht designed by the world famous L F Herreshoff. She has been lovingly restored over a 7 year period. She is a joy to sail and inspires much interest wherever she goes with many people admiring her.
The accommodation comprises of a single berth forward with some storage space. The good sized heads are to port. Coming forward into the saloon there are 2 settee berths, the port side one pulls out to make a double. The galley, which includes a compact fridge is to starboard. Outside the cockpit has a good amount of space with plenty of storage in the lockers.
If you are a discerning yachtsman wanting a traditional yacht this one is definitely worth making an appointment to view.
