35ft Williams and Parkinson Bermudan Cutter is in excellent condition and oozing with character and original features. One of only four built and later rebuilt in 1992 this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase this beautiful long keel classic.
Commissioned for husband and wife doctors in North Wales in 1938 Cumulus embarked on her first documented voyage to South Devon in 1939. She has been lovingly cared for by her owners since resulting in the well-presented classic we see today. Cumulus would serve future owners well as a comfortable liveaboard or an eye-catching classic yacht ideal for cruising or day sailing.
Cumulus has been most recently owned (since 2015) by a couple of sailing enthusiasts who have been living aboard and sailing her all over the South Coast of England. A significant amount of time has been spent increasing the comfort of the accommodation, whilst regularly sailing her and ensuring she is in an excellent seaworthy condition. In the 1980's was raced with a taller rig and still has a RORC rating (RORC 20.55. TCF.6533, Bsf 787.2). Since then she has benefited from a full refit in 1992 and cruised many nautical miles upon UK and European seas by classic yacht enthusiasts.
