Broker's Comments

Originally built and supplied new as a standard Jolly Boat, in 2014 she was then outfitted (by DBH ocean rowing services) as a solo, non-motorised sailing boat, to attempt the record for circumnavigation of the UK by a double Atlantic ocean rower and Olympic athlete. Sadly, an injury put paid to the attempt prior to the start. Since then she has been owned by a keen and knowledgeable sailor who has used her as a micro-adventure boat.
Somebody, somewhere is going to absolutely love this boat and what challenges and adventures can be had in her.
She is easily towed on her road trailer which is included.
These boat details are subject to contract.
