Ten Bob is a much sought-after Shilling Yawl, a beautiful little gem of a 2-berth sailing cruiser with a shoal draft hull and measuring a compact 17 feet in length (plus bowsprit). In excellent condition.She floats in just 12 inches of water with the galvanised 10mm plate retracted so is ideal for exploring creeks and backwaters. The hull shape with firm bilges creates initial stability and allows the boat to sit upright when drying out on a mooring or on the beach.The rig is a gaff yawl with furling headsail, ideal for cruising with low centre of effort. All lines are led back to the cockpit for ease of operation. The hull is very strong and virtually maintenance-free; constructed from 12mm Cedar over 12mm Marine Ply bulkheads (the speedstrip system), sheathed inside and out using 290gm woven cloth and epoxy resin.The cabin has full sitting headroom thanks to a clever & simple system for converting the two adult berths into very comfortable seats, and there is an easily accessible single-burner spirit stove and plenty of storage space. There is ample cockpit space for three adults. Side decks allow easy access to the foredeck, where a samson post acts as a strong point for attaching anchors or mooring lines. The mast is set in a tabernacle, which makes for easy handling.Ten Bob was built in 2009 by Willow Bay Boats.
