Broker's Comments

A unique classic gaff ketch built in Florida in 1957 for harvesting sea sponge.

She looks robust and workman like however her hull construction and planking are remarkably fine.

Whilst on board she seemed dry and warm, however, she really requires a full refit.

She is a project for a competant DIY person, a winter's work would transform this rather pretty boat.

Offers on the asking price will be considered.
