âSweet Kateâ was purchased by her current owner in 2014. Under present ownership she has been maintained to a high standard. An insurance survey was carried out in April 2008 and a copy of this report is available on request. The surveyor noted that âSweet Kateâ stands in good order with all repair work undertaken to a good standard and sympathetic to the original construction. The exterior and interior were clean and tidy which indicated that the vessel is well cared for and she will continue to provide safe sailing for the futureâ. Recommendations from this report were carried out including new keel bolts.
