Broker's Comments

This is a lovely example of the Varne-built GRP version of the classic Folkboat.

Well equipped with aluminium spars, slab reefing main, furling headsail and powered by a small Dolphin 2-stroke inboard.

She is ready for extensive cruising, with a very good inventory. She has a cockpit tent and winter cover along with a large inventory of cruising aids and luxuries.

There is also a 4-wheel, braked trailer, which is available by separate negotiation.
