Wing Sang : For Sale, August 2019
Alas, there are now less than ten wooden boats in my home port of Conwy marina. Of them, Wing Sang is by far the most grand. She's been on the hard for quite some time now and I was becoming concerned that such a precious boat was not in the water, where a wooden boat belongs. Pleasingly, given that she's not being used, she's recently been put up for sale. The asking price is in excess of £200,000; a reflection of the fact that she's in amazing condition following a major refit. The brokerage photographs are worth looking at even if you just want to dream...
