    Custom - Pilot Cutter for sale

    Sailing BoatsClassic Sailing BoatsCustomPilot Cutter

    1924 Pilot Cutter built by Worfolk and Sons of Kings Lynn. Ariadne has the potential to be an excellent live-aboard or restored piece of history. Sold as a project, there is some significant work to undertake, including replacement of some of the Archangel Redwood planking, and replacement of many of the double-sawn oak frames and futtocks towards the aft end of the boat. A new mast is required, but the main boom, gaff boom and bow sprit are in a serviceable condition. This boat has an excellent layout for a liveaboard and fully restored could offer stylish and comfortable living (or perhaps a unique holiday rental). In just three years time, 'Ariadne' will celebrate her 100th anniversary, and how special it would be for her to be on the water to see it. 2020 interim survey report summary available.
