A beautifully presented late model Laurent Giles Vertue gaff cutter for sale in the Caribbean.
Probably the only example on this side of the Atlantic and very sought after following the adventures of Eric and Susan Hiscock in 'Around the World in Wanderer III'. Their story of the first couple to sail around the world in a small boat, in the 1950's when such journeys were almost unheard of.
A charming and easily handled classic yacht ready to sail around the islands and sturdy enough to venture as far as you dare to dream.
Designed by Laurent Giles between the wars, this example was built in 1993 and launched in Exmouth. The hull is strip plank Iroko with West system epoxy, sheathed decks and a mahogany coachroof.
Roller reefing jib, staysail and gaff mainsail on wooden spars.
Tiller steering in a well protected cockpit, autopilot and a Yanmar 9hp diesel auxillary engine.
Good tankage, recent instruments, plotter, canvas and two dinghies.
Forward cabin with vee berth and manual Blake's head. Convertible saloon with sofas to port and starboard converting to single berths. Galley with sink and propane stove.
Recently hauled, overhauled, serviced, freshly antifouled and just launched.
A lovely little boat, eligible for the classic regattas too.
Lying in English Harbour, please contact me to view.
