Description

This traditional skiff was designed by G L Watson and built by MacDuff Boatbuilding in 1979 as a cruising yacht along the lines of a traditional Loch Fyne herring skiff. Ruggedly built in the fishing boat style she is a rare opportunity to acquire a relatively recent traditional boat with a recent modern Diesel. Over the last season the current owner has upgraded the boat making her easier to handle with a smaller crew, new electric windlass and Raymarine Multi Function Display with radar have been fitted.

She is the perfect boat to attend classic boat festivals. Currently lying afloat in the Outer Hebrides.
