Sweet Chestnut – an exquisite single skiff
An exquisite single skiff
Sweet Chestnut is a fine example of the workmanship emerging from the Hambleden Boatyard run by Colin and Lucie Henwood. Colin has trained many talented boatbuilders over the years including Will Howard who built this single skiff in 2005.She was exhibited at the London Boat Show and also at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley on Thames.
Apart from the bespoke trailer the inventory includes numerous bags for oars, seat back, painters and the other detailed accessories which accompany the craft.
I imagine this boat going to a private lake for romantic outings although there is room for two passengers facing the oars person.
This is a craft to purchase for posterity and will surely become a family heirloom in the right hands.
