A beautifully presented example of this eminently capable modern classic. Designed by William Garden and built by Ta Chaio of Taiwan in 1976, 'Gulliver' has been under the same family ownership for a number of years. During this time she has had a great deal of investment to keep her in first class condition. Recent work includes a new Volvo Penta engine, new bowsprit, recently refurbished dog house and updated sails to name but a few. Designed with all the charm of a wooden ketch, but built with a GRP hull, the CT41 is famed not only for its rugged seaworthiness but also for it's traditional charm with modern usability. The ideal vessel for the long distance live aboard couple or family cruiser alike. Truly a rare opportunity to find in such good condition, viewing comes highly recommended. please Call Charlie Thwaites on +44 (0) 7780690475 for more details.
