H323 Honour Bound. Scandinavian folk-boat design. Built in Turku , Finland 1983 . Only three known in UK. Very popular boats in the Baltic areas.
For sale as I’m getting older and am looking for something a little heavier with more stowage , possibly a deck saloon type for the interesting Scottish weather !
Honour Bound is for sale. We’ve had more than ten good years together. The first few years we spent doing local racing on the NE coast. With some success. Honour Bound sails exceedingly well in most conditions. Easy to sail , easy on crew with the self tacking jib. Exciting and fast under kite , three to four crew ideal , I have used the kite single handed in lighter conditions however.
She easily slices through waves with Her narrow hull. Not a lot of wetted area for a 32 foot boat. Capable of embarrassing much larger boats at times.
The past five years or so have been spent mainly in Scottish waters. Several visits to Orkney and around Cape Wrath. We’ve seen some very lively weather at times , all without incident. She has looked after me well.

Woodwork below still looking good. She is very comfortable.
She’s been a busy boat , we’ve done more than 16,000 miles together , many single handed. I’ve replaced anything that was needed to keep her in top sailing trim regardless of cost.
She has coped well in the lively Scottish weather , If She finds a new home I shall really miss Her. If She doesn’t sell , we shall keep on sailing.
