Broker's Comments

Sophus Weber was one of the most well known of the Danish yacht designers, based in Svendborg which was without doubt the hub of wooden boatbuilding at the beginning of last century. Yachts of Webers such as the 1923 sloop Aaworyn are still racing today.

This particular Danish lady has fallen on hard times in recent years and as is obvious from photographs requires complete restoration. Her pedigree is such that it should be worth doing. She has a rig and there is an engine and a stove and some equipment with her but none of this is seen working

She is being sold by Cowes Harbour Commission in lieu of money owed so a condition of sale is that she must be removed from their yard. The yard management and staff will offer every assistance with this

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Sophus Weber design Wooden Ketch has been personally photographed and viewed by Corinne Gillard of Boatshed IOW. Click here for contact details.
