About this Frimoat Nielson Double Ended Gaff Ketch


Deneb K is a totally unique Gaff Ketch with heaps of character & traditional style, although over 80 years old Deneb K has been respectfully modernized and now boasts a new Beta Engine with less than 100 hours! Extensive other work has been completed and details can be found further in the listing, with a bit more love and a slight tidy up Deneb K will be ready to turn heads once again.
