Surveyours Comments in 2014 (Please ask for a copy of 2014 Survey)
These are well built vessels originally and this one in particular would appear to have been built by somebody who new what they were doing. She appears to have been well looked after. This vessel is quite suitable for sailing in waters for which she was designed.
Owners Comments
My wife and now 10yr old daughter and I have had the pleasure of sailing Talland since summer of 2014. We have had some good adventures sailing around the Norfolk coast and some scary ones. Talland can take some rough weather and we have had fun sailing her. She has been craned out in the winter and kept well maintained as did the previous owner. She is good to go for many years. We are selling as we have bought a Yacht and are looking to sail further a field and longer distances. Talland has been a great first time sailing vessel and learning curve.
