    A unique opportunity to own a true one off built by the renowned Willy and Peter Bieritz of Kiel in 1967. A true Gentleman's cruising boat, Myrtle of St Mawes has had just two owners from new and was designed and built to cruise in comfort, safety and of course complete classic style! Having completed a circumnavigation via the Cape of Good Hope in 1983 she has been cruised extensively in Europe and the Mediterranean before coming to the West Country in 2014. Having been lovingly maintained and upgraded over the years, including a new engine in 2017, Myrtle is presented to the market in beautiful condition and is ready for her next sailing adventure.
