Broker's Comments

Built by Honnor Marine- world famous for the production of high quality traditional open plan sailing crafts.

The Dabber is the smallest of the split-rig boats, but still exhibits the same built quality, versatility and performance of her bigger counterparts . The sail plan is well proportioned in relation to the size and weight of the boat giving a responsive but not over powering performance.

The Dabber is built to European safety standards which include approved stability and buoyancy- a feature of all Honnor Marine boats.

The boat presents in good condition and comes with well maintained trailer, cockpit cover and like new Honda 2.0hp outboard. The rigging and sails appear in a used but good condition. This is a well presented and together boat, motor and trailer package, ready to collect and use this summer.

These boat details are subject to contract.
