Boat Description

Wooden Ships Comments
Built by Ernest J. Woods of Horning, Norfolk in 1930 to a design by G. Cozens. No doubt inspired by the working boats, she has a gently curved stem and raked transom with an elegant sheer and well proportioned rig making her a pretty and capable yacht. Raced regularly by the previous owner in OGA events with great success, she was also used as a cruising boat with visits to Holland, France and the Scillies, proving her sea worthiness and capability.
The present owner has fitted a second hand Yanmar diesel making her a little more user friendly for modern sailing.
A very fine looking yacht with a clean 2014 survey.
