Broker's Comments

A classic boat built by J W Miller & Sons Ltd at their yard in St Monans, Fife. Miller Fifers were built in various sizes; this one is the 27', 5.5 tonnes ketch.

Known worldwide for the quality and craftsmanship of their vessels they are popular with classic wooden boat enthusiasts.

This boat requires some maintenance to bring her back to her very best condition, although the current owner has been working on her recently to improve her overall appearance.

A project for someone who appreciates a classic boat.

These boat details are subject to contract.
