SOLD: Romilly No.16 “Swallow"

Ry16 “Swallow” is fast and clean and in a ready-to-sail-away condition, stored ashore inside a heated shed in Cumbria, England.
Selling due change in family and work commitments.

This boat is a delight to sail.
She stands up to her canvas well, and has characteristics of both a dinghy and a big boat.
She is gorgeous to look at!
We have really enjoyed this boat and her flexibility, appreciating her sailing solo (pure) or going out for a picnic daysail with 7 friends aboard, going on expeditions and camping aboard, racing in rallies and festivals e.g Sail Caledonia (Scotland), Semaine du Golfe du Morhiban (France).
I will be proud to introduce the next owner to “Swallow” to set sail in her.
