1968 Maurice Griffiths Lone Gull II

Levington, United Kingdom


The Lone Gull II was designed by Maurice Griffiths as a shoal draft cruiser than can dry out easily on the hard.  They are a simple, stoutly built design with well mannered performance and spacious accommodation below decks.  This excellent example was built by Whisstocks, Woodbridge, and has been maintained to a very high standard throughout its life.  A delightful example and ready to sail away for this season, she is priced for a quick sale due to an unexpected change of circumstances.
