Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered. This boat probably represents an icon of classic boating , the Parham built folk boats are sought after. It exudes an era of other times and yet has a sturdy feel, a boat for all seasons. With an extended coachroof, and painted decks this particular example is very fine. She has been owned by the same family for a little less than 50 years! But her upkeep has been exemplary, every season , replacement or servicing has taken place, she had new standing rigging some years ago and she has an excellent suit of sails coupled with a late 2013 Yanmar Diesel. It is below, that her personality is most apparent, the owners have been careful to preserve so much of what makes her a classic, a perfect balance of maintenance and not over renovation. And to top off her internal appointments a snug and efficient multi fuel burner, and just so there is no barrier to your enjoyment she has the rights to her mooring until November 2017, with an option to extend. Her mooring is on one of the prettiest stretches of the Suffolk Coast. If you are looking for a weekender, thats practical and yet enables you to share in her classic charm and then you could just be her next custodian but this is a down to earth sailing boat, in apparently ready to sail for this season condition.
