This attractive launch has spent the last fifty years gently pottering up and down Shakespeare’s River Avon, occassionally used on fine Summer days and dry stored in the boatstore in Winter so in remarkably good condition.  An ideal vessel for day trips, river picnics or simply messing about on the water.  The construction makes for ease of maintainance but with pleasing traditional lines and attractive sheer.
