EQUIPMENT – NAVIGATION – OPTIONS
The boat is not much equipped by modern standards. Buying such a boat means being motivated by an aesthetic interest. The main thing being that the boat is in good structural condition. Which is what we believe. A survey is recommended.
Illingworth and A. Primrose were the designers for prestigious boats such as Oryx, Outlaw, Gipsy Moth IV, the Maïca, all boats from an era, and what an era…
The hull is made of 5 or 6 plies of mahogany. Teak decked.
