This is a nice piece for the experienced collector who wants to have an oilpainting in his collection of one of the rarely painted and highly sought after 19th Century Sporting Yachts with their special charme. The unique type of this yacht - a cutter-bow Yawl, with the second mast at the end of the hull and the back sail placed outside over the water - which was built for sporting purpose only in a short period of time (mainly around the 1880s) - adds another appeal to this beautiful and historically important oilpainting. The price mentioned included shipping to Europe.

The owner is a well respected lawyer in Oslo so the required prepayment by bank transfer is an absolute safe method of paying this painting.
