We are selling our Gaffers and Luggers Heard 23. The boat was built in 1992 and has been owned by the original owner until we bought it 2 years ago.
The Heard 23 was designed by Percy Dalton as a GRP version of the traditional Falmouth Working Boats, as a heavy displacement small cruiser or weekender with lots of character, with remarkably good performance and seakeeping ability.
The Heard boats are based on a heavily built GRP Hull, they sail extremely well with a number of them racing along side the original wooden Falmouth working boats.

over the last 2 years (between lock downs) we’ve spent alot of time refubishing the boat and getting it ready to use. this has included removing the engine and rebuilding it, stripping and repainting the bilges, stripping all the internal varnish and revarnishing it.
As can be seen in the photo’s the boat has a very traditional feel and is ready to go.
