A superb dinghy built by Hartley and designed by Giles. The boat is in excellent condition and exceptionally well cared for. It has been used on fresh water lakes only.

The fully battened sail has only been used for two seasons, and then only a handful of times thus it’s in excellent condition. Includes a second (smaller) sail.

This dinghy has continuous control lines and an adjustable mast raking system installed, which makes for a racing performance boat much easier to handle in all winds. Also installed are capsize recovery lines up under the gunwales.

Priced for quick sale. The boat is located at Whitefriars Sailing Club, Ashton Keynes SN6 6QR
