Wooden Ships Comments
4 ton bermudan cutter designed and built by Hillyards of Littlehampton in 1938.
This was one of the small Hillyard designs with very pretty lines and a sea kindly hull, so despite her small size she is a capable and fun boat to sail.
In present ownership for many years this is now sadly an executor sale, however it is clear that much work has been put into the boat over the years with a new mast in 2010, recent new deck and a new transom. She is what appears to be a sound and respectable yacht which will bring much joy to her new owners and continue to acquire admiring looks wherever she goes.
