Broker's Comments

We are delighted at Boatshed Cornwall to list this Golant Gaffer. Designed and built by the infamous Roger Dongray (Cornish Crabber) for his own use, it is believed. This is the first Golant Gaffer to be built from the drawing board and is now priced for a quick sale.

This is a well presented Golant Gaffer and it is understood to have only had two owners during it’s twenty (20) year life. It has been stored ashore over the winter with the mast lying along the deck.

The engine has been serviced and maintained by a local marine engineer with plenty of invoices to support it’s history.

It is understood that this design was only intended for home build and therefore does not comply with the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) in force at the time of build.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
