Remarks :
A rare opportunity to own a Venus 42 gaff rigged ketch designed by Paul Johnson.  'Norn' has been sailed 30,000 nautical miles by the current owners visiting New Zealand, South America, the Falkland Islands and spending a lot of time in the Caribbean and off the coast of the US.  She is a heavy, safe boat and is fun to sail as well as being comfortable and spacious.  Below she has six berths and because of her wide beam the saloon is very roomy.
