Folkboat Cruising Yacht

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 by a dedicated owner who has spared no expense in order to keep her up to scratch.

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 130 hrs use. The engine drives a Brunton feathering propeller. All control lines have been led aft to the cockpit and her owner routinely sails her single handed
