Year

1987

Length

30 ft (6.86m)

Location

Levington

This customer built gaff cutter is based along the lines of a boat designed by Reg Freeman in 1934 with the lovely addition of a counter stern. "Sarah" was built by Benfleet Boat Co in 1987 and has a cold moulded hull which gives her a beautiful compromise of the delight of a classic wooden yacht but the benefits & easy maintenance of a modern GRP yacht. 

We are inviting sealed bids above the indicated price to Clarke & Carter by mid day on May 31th 2024. The sale is strictly ‘as is where is’ without any warranty on condition or description. The boat is due some maintenance to get her ready for the season ahead.

Viewing by appointment at our Suffolk Office (IP10 0LN) - 01473 659681
