2007 Benford Dory 38' - GBP 163,000

Blondie Hasler made long distance sailing famous in his own junk rigged yacht 'Jester' in the 60's and many have followed since.

'Wild Fox' was built under close supervision by her owner for his own single handed adventures and finished to an exceedingly high standard. The yacht has been perfectly maintained, and having sailed 40,000 nm still presents like new. Any junk rig fan will love this yacht.

The yacht won it's class in the Concours d' Elegance Antigua Classic week in 2011 and has been maintained to the same standard ever since.

December 2019 update; This month a new Lofrans Kobra 1000 watt windlass has been installed and teak decks completely re caulked.

Entering the boat the BLAKES VICTORY head c/w holding tank, is immediately to port and there is access aft for storage.
