Designed by Harrison Butler and built by the acclaimed Whisstocks of Woodbridge, Lady Mary is a charming classic cruising yacht of carvel construction, with a slim and graceful canoe stern. She features a safe, comfortable self-draining cockpit, uncluttered decks, and thanks to her generous beam and cleverly utilised space below, she is well suited to a couple looking to do longer passages. During her current ownership of over 40 years, she has clearly been loved and a comprehensive restoration has been carried out, but the time has come to pass custodianship of this very special yacht to an enthusiastic new owner. Anyone looking for a practical, highly useable classic sailing yacht with an excellent pedigree should put her on the top of their list!
