An original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter built by Halford of Gloucester in 1899. Her working life was short and she was sold off as yacht in 1907, subsequently voyaging many thousands of miles with various owners.

The recently reduced price reflects the location of the boat, not the condition or general market trends towards Pilot Cutters. We have looked in depth at transporting her home and it is a relatively straight forward process.
