This boat was built by Simon Thorp's father in 1964, with a little help from Simon.
This boat is now for sale for £1
- The boat is complete and there is her original Seagull outboard.
- The boat has provided sailing for three generations but to achieve the fourth will require some restoration work.
- The boat is complete but has not been sailed for 11 years.
- The boat is called 'Farthing' in recognition that the Americas Cup challenger in 1964 was 'Sovereign'.
Finding a good home to avoid the threat of a 'viking funeral' is more important than payment.
She was rescued in February by Gareth Honeyford and taken to West Mersea.
