I am delighted to have 'Sue Too' back on our books. The accommodation has been considerably improved by her previous owner by the addition of the attractive deck house. This gives far greater useable room down below.

Sue Too is very special! Her quality of build and her subsequent maintenance make her look almost as good as new. Whist described here as a weekender, many have crossed oceans in less seaworthy boats. With her long keel, easily handled rig with the ability to reduce sail safely, and her self draining cockpit there is no reason - with a few modifications - why she shouldn't be used for more serious coastal sailing or passage making.

She comes very well equipped - complete with  -

She has been the subject of a couple of articles in Watercraft magazine.
