Broker's Comments

The hull of this vessel is a GRP copy of the original ‘Blue Peter’, a wooden gaff rigged cutter designed by the famous naval architect and author John Leather.

Although still in the project stage, it comes with a modern road trailer, a 1GM 10 Yanmar engine, a copy of the original John Leather drawings and many other fixtures ready to be fitted.

The present owner has too many other commitments at the present time and would like to see her taken on by a keen and capable classic enthusiast.
