The Folkboat needs little introduction. These pretty, seaworthy craft can be found all over the world and have earned a reputation for ultimate seaworthiness. With excellent performance and shallow draft they make rewarding coastal cruisers whilst being perfectly capable of safe offshore and oceanic passages.
This good example is of composite construction, with GRP hull and ring deck with varnished mahogany coachroof and cockpit; all the beauty of wood with the convenience of GRP. She is well equipped with a reliable inboard diesel engine, alloy mast, foresail furler, central heating, marine WC, electric anchor windlass and comfortable interior. And she's gorgeous to look at, a beautiful classic craft with attractive lines certain to attract attention wherever she sails.

The open plan accommodation offers up to four berths. In the forecabin, V berth with infill and marine toilet under. This is not a full length adult berth, but would be fine for children (or short people!). There is an opening hatch to deck and marine toilet under the berth. In the main part of the cabin there are two full length settee berths, with stowage under, and two full length stowage shelves above. There is sitting headroom in the saloon. There is a small chart table to starboard, with the same arrangement opposite which could be used for a portable stove if required. There is a wet hanging space by the chart table with a hot air vent. Eberspacher diesel fired hot air central heating.
