Print Boat Details
Beautifully restored Classic Cutter Ketch rigged, round-bilged Motor Sailer. Originally built in 1935 in Risor, South Norway, and used as a Pilot Boat until the 1960's. She was then transformed into a powerful motor sailer to yacht standard. The conversion was professionally undertaken in Germany. The current owner purchased the craft in 2002 and carried out further restoration and re-fit from 'top to bottom' by professional shipwrights and equipment specialists. Her build includes steel frames, with oak hull timbers which have a covering of 6 layers of fibre-glass. The decks and superstructure are of teak. Mast, spars and sails available but not currently rigged. The vessel has been used as a support craft to diving (pleasure & professional) with the appropriate certfications. Now used as a pleasure craft, the owner is looking to move on to a new vessel. Seen by the Broker in 2007 when visiting the UK.

Broker’s Comments:
This craft was briefly berthed in Newhaven which gave the Broker time to view. She is a most impressive craft and clearly offers traditional, comfortable accommodation, the opportunity to sail long distances as well as a 'healthy motor' to negotiate harbour berths. She is currently lying Norway as a motor cutter. Her sailing and rigging are stored in Belgium.
