Ian Oughtred Tammie Norrie class


The Tammie Norrie is in our opinion one of Oughtreds best designs, easily rowed, capable of carrying a decent load and beautiful to handle under sail. This one was built by the owner to a good standard and has been lightly used on the Cumbrian lakes. Recently re-varnished and ready to go, she is on a galvanised road trailer with a piggy back launching trolley all in good condition. Great little package to get afloat this summer without breaking the bank.
