Hillyard Four ton - £3,000

An opportunity to own a little classic. This four ton gaff cutter was built in 1937 by David Hillyard at his famous yard in Littlehampton Sussex.

She is offered for sale at a bargain price due to her owners family commitments and lack of use.

The original engine was replaced by an 13hp Beta marine diesel in 2002.

A pair of beaching legs will allow her to take the ground if required. A storage cradle for winter storage is included.

With her tan sails and bow sprit she stands out from the crowd.
