Wooden Ships Comments
Based on the lines of a north Devon beach boat, designed as small fishing boats kept on and launched from the beach. As such these boats are strongly built with good buoyancy and stability and high freeboard to cope with the open sea conditions they work in on a daily basis. She is therefore a seaworthy boat with good space and volume, comfortable seating and a very nice quality of finish.
This boat was built by Nick Smith of Christchurch, a highly skilled and experienced motor launch builder known for the quality of his work. This boat has only been launched once to test the engine, she was then put back on her trailer, winterised and is now for sale.
