A beautifully restored GRP classic gaff cutter racing yacht.
The Falmouth Working Boats are a beautiful sight in Falmouth Harbour. These boats have been taken to the French classic regattas and returned with the silverware.
This yacht underwent a complete professional rebuild in 2015. The keel was removed and the hull totally stripped out. New fit out, new keel bolts, new deck, new rudder, new mast, new rigging (standing & running), new spars, new sails...........new boat!
Nellie May is in her 3rd ownership from new and comes with good maritime history. Originally used to dredge oysters in Falmouth Harbour but now she is a 'yacht'.
'Nellie' can race, or cruise, with oodles of style, panache and speed.
We have a mass of information on this boat. Please call to discuss.
