Broker's Comments

Robert Tucker designs are reputed as rugged 'pocket cruisers'. This version has sailed extensively in Northern European waters, demonstrating the boat's seaworthiness and potential for extended, coastal cruising. The boat has a traditional feel and ease of handling, with lines led aft and a sufficiently powerful and recently rebuilt (head) engine. The boat is currently in commission and used for club racing and family cruising.

When I visited the boat, I was struck by its potential. With some superficial updating, this boat will provide, smart, traditional, shallow water and coastal cruising options for singlehanded or group sailors and an equally ideal platform for those with experience or new to sailing.

These boat details are subject to contract.
