Beautiful classic wooden Dee 25 know as 'Balze' that appears to be in great condition, certainly NOT a project, please look through the photos.
Recently sailed from the west coast of Scotland to and around the Irish sea and again recently in the Scillies, the owner reports that she is very seaworthy indeed.
Recently proffesionally stripped back to bare wood, splined and then 12 coats of varnish added.
Recent new standing rigging and wind generator, she makes an excellent opportunity for any buyer in this market.
Very easy to buy a cheaper boat that needs significant unknown expensive works, when 'Blaze' is here now and potentially ready to go.Inventory
