This lovely old gaff-rigged 32ft sailing yacht is for sale by a friend of reader and contributor Hans-Christian Rieck – but who built her and when?
The owner has no documents relating to her construction and would love to know more if anyone can help. Is she a Hillyard dating from 1930, as the owner suspects?

All wrong for a Hillyard I would say. Spoonish bow (should be bluffer), cut away forefoot (fuller keel), counter stern (transom or canoe) ,coach roof (should be flat and square pine coverered in painted canvas, square ports, too smart interior, oak on oak (pine, larch or mahogany planking), nice though. (Mine's a genuine 1935 4 tonner)
