Much admired dutch classic Ijsselaak motor-sail vessel built in 1899, transformed into pleasure craft. 11.5m long by 3.5m wide is an ideal size for inland waterways with a large rear deck with bimini allowing comfortable cruising. Whilst currently set up for inland cursing the wooden lee boards, mast, boom, rigging and sails can be set for sailing in estuaries & rivers. Since last being surveyed in 2012, replating and 2 pack epoxy blacking applied, much modernisation has been carried out including fitting hot water, shower, rewiring, intelligent charging system fitted.
