Snap up a bargan and be sailing a classic folkboat this season. All offers considered.
When I bought this boat it had been stored ashore (on a launch trailer) for several years and the owner had never used it. The owner before this (who I have spoken to) had completely refurbished the the boat including the fitting of a new Yanmar 1gm 10 engine. Some internal work (including keel bolt check) was carried out by the boatyard where she is now moored. The boat was sailed for one season only before being put up for sale.
I stripped back the hull and recaulked it before launching and moving to her present mooring in June 2011. I had the mast removed for stripping and revarnishing (only partly done as yet). I have also stripped the top of the dog house (as the canvas was perished) ready for the boatyard owner to apply an epoxy coating when the weather warms up.
There are two fairly new batteries a new control pannel and radio. There is also a tatty fibreglass tender (see second picture) that comes with the boat. The mainsail is in good condition. The jib sails and spinnaker are tatty but servicable.
Make no mistake this is a restoration project or work in progress - you are not going to sail away on her in the present condition. Some time and money needs to be spent to get her ship shape. The work can be carried out by the boatyard as the owner is a highly skilled wooden boat restorer. On the plus side the Yanmar enginge (presently winterised) is in excellent condition as it has only been run for one season since new.
I would advise that you contact me before buying as I want to be sure you know what you are buying.
