This classic little ship has a very interesting history, having been released by the Royal Navy in 1947 and converted into a private yacht. In recent years she has travelled extensively in the Mediterranean and makes an ideal family cruising yacht. She was recently slipped and antifouled, with the topsides and decks repainted. 
She can easily be demasted and used as liveaboard
canal/inland waterways vessel.
