Liffin : For Sale, September 2017
Liffin is a tidy example of Alan Buchanan's highly successful East Anglian design from the 1950s. Well over a hundred of these were built; see Vanessa Bird's Classic Boat article for further detail. Liffin is still racing, being entered in the 2015 Suffolk Yacht Harbour's Classic Regatta of 2015, for example. She's now up for sale (September 2017) with many major jobs tackled in her current ownership, such as new keel bolts in 2015. The asking price is £8,750 and the owner, David Skinner, can be contacted via the Old Gaffer's Association website.
