Broker's Comments

A project boat with a very interesting history. 'Escaper' was commissioned by Flight Lieutenant Eric Williams who was the author of several books including The Wooden Horse that was made into a film of the same name in 1950 which portrays the story of when he was shot down in a WWII bombing raid and the subsequent escape from Stalag Luft III. She is a very much loved vessel and the current owners want the boat to go to a new owner who will enjoy the restoration of the yacht to bring her back to her former glory. Most of the required work is cosmetic but the owners have made the following comments regarding known non-cosmetic issues.
