Broker's Comments

This is a fantastic opportunity to own a classic at a bargain price!

The Diamonds were an Alan Buchanan design in the early 60's built originally by Stebbings - this one is the fourth to be launched and still has her No.4 Diamond sails.

Her owner has done a lot of work to restore her, but she does need further time spent to restore her to her former glory. Many items are available and have been dry stored, including wind-vane steering, various additional sails and hardware.

I can highly recommend a viewing to appreciate what she has to offer.
