The Bermudan Sloop built in 1956 to Alan Buchanan's Yeoman II Design



Negus : Beautifully Maintained
Negus is in stunningly good condition, largely the result of having over £70,000 spent on her in the late 1990s when a new deck and coachroof were fitted and the engine replaced. After David Boddy bought her in 2007, he continued to lavish care and attention on Negus, including having work done over the winter 2008/2009 by Traditional Shipwright Services in Poole. David put her up for sale with the Sandman Yacht brokerage in 2011 which is where the above photograph is taken.
