Nomansland Too – a Monaco 38 by Morgan Giles

A Morgan Giles 38

Built of double diagonal mahogany this is a late nineteen sixties classic with a lovely spacious and light interior. Morgan Giles was prolific, building more than a thousand yachts from the inception of the yard in the nineteen twenties. As Nomansland Too approaches her half century she represents amazing value for money having been refurbished by her vendors over the past few years to a good standard and now bearing modern equipment and navigation systems.

Her twin diesel engines offer economical cruising and the spacious light interior make this an attractive proposition when a boat of a similar size built today in GRP would be costing you around half a million pounds.

The boat is currently ashore in Southern England awaiting a new owner. A recent survey is available and the boat is being sold in unfortunate circumstances due to a recent death. Please ask for more photographs. Call the office to view on 01491 578870.
