This 1965 carvel built mahogany on oak Folkboat was built by Parham and Sons in Emsworth. She is ideal for coastal cruising and has the added advantage of a self draining cockpit. Her inventory includes a Yanmar 9HP diesel engine, main sail, jib, spinnaker, four berths, 2015 teak decks, 2014 colour chartplotter, 2014 log, depth and wind. She looks really well and is worth viewing.

"Following a Survey by Marine Surveyor Pat Lake, 6 new ribs were fitted in 2014 along with the new cockpit.
"Jenni" is a beautiful boat to sail and certainly an eye-catcher, drawing pleasant comments from fellow sailors wherever we sail.
Following extensive structural work on her hull, deck and cockpit, little is left for the traditional enthusiast."
"This Folkboat has lovely classic lines. She looks completed outside and requires a small bit of finishing inside, which is not unusual for a classic wooden boat. The owner is moving on to another project."
