• Norfolk Gypsy - Redshank Boat No. 102

    Norfolk Gypsy 102 ‘Redshank’ has been professionally serviced by Neil Thompson Boats for the last seventeen years and is in amazing condition. The condition of her gel coat on her topsides is fabulous with a deep shine. The same is true of the soft cream gel coat on her deck, cabin and cockpit. The hardwood seat battens, cockpit cappings and washboards have been stripped back to bare wood and given four coats of special marine oil in order to protect and give a traditional finish.

    Redshank has been fully refurbished, is in immaculate condition and will be sold with a 12 month extended manufacturers warranty.
