Darag : Fully Restored and Much Loved Hillyard For Sale
Darag was restored by Thorkild Hansen, a shipwright who lived aboard her for many years in Wiseman's Reach in Fowey, Cornwall. Thorkild often sailed single handed, and cruised the West Coast of France, to Spain and Gibralter in Darag. She's now up for sale where she's described as, “a joy to behold - completely rebuilt from the hull up. Unique in that the aft cabin has been removed, allowing the saloon companionway to be extended aft, creating a much larger aft cockpit and voluminous lazerette locker. Having seen the quality of workmanship above deck, your expectations for the interior are raised and as you descend into the saloon you are not disappointed. Again the high standard of workmanship is evident. All internal furniture, lockers and additional storage have been replaced”.
