Torrie Bey is a 40ft 9inch” custom built Ketch. Boat history – She was built in the 1970s by David Flokhart (Flokhards Boat Builders). She was built for a doctor in Torryburn, The River Forth, Scotland. The place where it was built helped inspire the name Torrie Bey which means “Chief” in Arabic. She is based on a Robert Tucker, off shore 41. It took 20 year’s to build, she was commissioned in 1990 and put into the Water. The Hull is of a Fiberglass and ply board construction known as a Sandwich. She is a long Keel and the Keel is also made of Steel. The top core is made of Fiberglass and the deck is covered with Teak wood. The air draft is 45ft. 3/4 main mask, mizen 2/1. The Yacht weighs 11 Tons (22,000lbs). Her engine was replaced with a Yanmar 42TE, 3600rpm. New engine has been fully serviced. She will sit aroud 2800rpm at 42 knot winds. She is capable of doing 17 knots on her side and 7-9 under sail. The cabin is of a traditional design and has a big galley which sleeps up to 6 people. Separate heads and shower and has plenty of storage space. The NAV station is of good size and has inside and outside navigational instruments. The sails are in excellent condition.Bad points – The boat has banged up against the mooring and caused damage to it’s side above the water line. It is roughly around (2-2.5ft) in length and (6-10inchs) in depth. She was taken to the shipyard and has had a temporary patch repair over the damage and has been sealed, rivited/bolted and I’m told that the repair is probably stonger than the Hull. The boat can go to sea with temporary patch repair and I would recommend getting that section repaired. The temporary patch doesn’t look pretty just like any other patch. Outside instruments are not working but we do have new replacements. Needs a few paint touch ups on the inside of the cabin and also the outside.The boat sale also includes:3x Life Jackets (New)1x four man life Raft (serviced till 09/21)4x Emergency Coastal Flares pack (2 rocket and 2 orange handheld flares)1x Around the world Clipper Race wetsuit (jacket and bottoms)2x Nasa Marine, Depth sounders Instruments (New)1x Emergency Airhorn (New)2x Fan belts (New)1x Sea Knife (New)1x Lowrance Finder GO 16 Channel Receiver3x Admiralty Chart port folio’s (New) (Whitbey to Edinburgh) (East coast – Orford Ness to Whitby) (Thames Estuary – Ramsgate to Tower Bridge) The Yacht is currently moored up in Edinburgh, Scotland.For more information/specs/history of the yacht or would like more photos please feel free to contact me.
