Broker's Comments

This is a fine example of an early English Folkboat, built by Bussel & Co, Weymouth in 1958, for a Dr Whittaker who sailed in and around Weymouth Bay.

Carvel planked with a nice low profile coachroof gives her the sweet lines similar to the original Nordic boats.

Good accommodation and great sea-keeping, she's previously competed in the Folkboat week with some success.

She has had a lot of work carried out in recent years and is still undergoing some refurbishment - hence the price. Hull has been stripped back and she is undergoing a repaint.

Cradle and bespoke trailer are now included in the price!
