Produced by Swallow Boats in Wales and available as a completed boat or as a kit, "Llong Taid" is a home constructed kit finished in 2012. Surveyed for insurance purposes in that year she was found to be structurally sound with all work completed to a good standard. She comes complete with a Honda 2.3hp outboard and break back road trailer and is ready to go wherever the fancy takes you.
