Wild Rover

Wild Rover was built to a high specification for a Transatlantic voyage by its first owner a well known yachtsman from the Isle of Man. From new it has had four owners and been based on the Clyde for most of its life. I have owned the ship for the last ten years and have been meticulous in its maintenance and appearance. A reliable, easy to handle much admired yacht. Selling due to skipper's advancing years.
