1990 Norfolk Gypsy

Norfolk Gypsy - Description

1990 Norfolk Gypsy, gunter rigged with a high peak gaff, with Yanmar 10hp inboard diesel engine. 'Gypsy Moon' is a clean and tidy example of this traditionally styled yacht, which has been well cared for and maintained. Within the last 5 years she has benefitted from a new mast, new bilge pump, new jib and jib sheets, new sail cover and new tri-colour and anchor lights. She is coppercoated, which was originally applied in 2007 but this was checked and reapplied as necessary in 2019. The Norfolk Gypsy has a centreboard operated from the cockpit and bilge runners meaning she is ideal for shallow waters. Engine serviced April 2024. Now back in the water and ready for the season ahead. Available to view by appointment at Birdham Pool Marina.
