Loch Broom Post Boats sail well on all points of sailing and are stable boats suitable for Norfolk inland waters, large lochs & lakes, estuary and inshore coastal sailing.

From the manufacturer's website:

"The Post Boat is based on the Loch Broom Post Boat; a small, clinker-built sailing vessel which was used for delivery of mail to the remote community on Loch Broom, Wester Ross. The original Post Boat is now in the Irvine Maritime Museum, Scotland."

"While made in fibreglass to ensure easy maintenance, they retain the charm and many characteristics of the wooden originals. This very attractive craft gains attention wherever it is seen."

The Loch Broom Post Boat is a beamy and stable family cruising dinghy, with a very roomy cockpit thanks to her long keel and the absence of a centre plate box. She offers good windward performance and good ability on all points of sail, and is not slow on tacks and gybes. Conveniently she doesn't require a braked trailer due to the overall gross weight of boat and trailer being below 750kg.

DELIVERY: Currently lying near Castle Douglas, South West Scotland. The vendor is willing to deliver within the UK for the cost of fuel and any other expenses incurred.

The Owner is a 76 year old former sailing coach who has sailed many Loch Broom Post Boats and owned several over the last 30 years
