Folkboat 25 - £9,000

Encounter is a cruising Folkboat built in the UK in 1986 by D C Blake and sons. She is extremely well presented and is in immaculate condition having been well maintained. A copy of the 2018 survey is available.

She is not like many other models of the Folkboat class; Encounter does not have a spartan interior, in fact her accommodation is both comfortable and well appointed. She comes well equipped with a full inventory and is ready to go.

The original engine has been replaced with a modern Beta 14hp with only 150 hrs use. The engine drives a Brunton feathering propeller. All control lines have been led aft to the cockpit and she can be sailed single handed. Encounter has a storage cradle and beaching legs.
