The International Dragon, first designed in 1929, does not need an introduction.
WANDERER is a wonderful example and has had a very interesting and colourful life, starting in Denmark under the name of CRAZY VI, and then shipped to Hong Kong in the 1970’s, and renamed WANDERER. She raced successfully in and around Hong Kong, and benefitted from her Borresen pedigree, known for building quick and stiff boats. She was re-imported to the UK in 2007 and has since been epoxy sheathed with clear epoxy to minimize maintenance and weight and to maximize stiffness and performance, whilst retaining the stunning varnished appearance.
She has a very successful racing history and has taken part in Cowes Classic Week in the last few years in her current ownership, and with excellent results.
Original spruce mast and decent sail wardrobe will enable WANDERER to continue to be a race winner in the right hands, or a truly lovely cruising yacht if preferred. Lightly used twin axle top notch bespoke road trailer included.
