OWNERS COMMENTS:

In current ownership for last five years.

Not many miles covered sailing mostly in the River Dart and to Salcombe.

She is being sold due to the arrival of a new baby and the owner feels she should be sailed rather than sit on her mooring.

The owner says “ She is a joy to sail and easy to own with very simple systems. WAFFLER has never let me down and has been a pleasure to own. She could do with some upgrades and tidying in areas but currently can go back in the water and be ready for a summer season cruising.”
