Description

Swift is a fully restored 1957 Classic Wooden Cruiser Folkboat. Folkboats need no introduction, aficionados of the design become moist in the eye at the mention of the marque and this one will bring a tear to the eye of any GRP boat owner. The previous owner discovered Swift lying in a shabby state in the corner of a boatyard and immediately fell in love with her and couldn't resist the opportunity to buy her for the princely sum of £1. The refit was completed 2 years ago and was a labour of love by a master craftsman and experienced sailor. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjMeKc5twus&t=237s) If you are a devotee of the Folkboat this is an opportunity to acquire a totally rebuilt example to the finest of shipwright standards throughout. Swift comes with a trailer.

This is a magnificent example of a classic Folkboat, re-built to the highest standards with thought and understanding. The present owner was not able sail her as much as planned, so wants to pass her on to someone that can enjoy her. She is currently indoors under cover for the winter. No Sensible offer refused.
