Build is ‘Cold Molded’ epoxy bonded diag x 3 mahogany wood, solid, no rot, no bugs. She has three separate entrances to below decks. Owner apprentice served boat-builder has re-furbished over the last two years. All ongoing work is cosmetic.

My yacht is in solid condition. As said before I am a professional yacht restorer, my apprenticeship was in yacht carpentry.

I have nothing to hide and have some photos of the repairs I have done should you request.
