Where to startThis boat is actually a part of yachting history due to its results in 1968, and a very busy racing career. It is not totally original, but very close and is just a pleasure to just sit on!!Sailing is just amazing.She is operational and ready to sail, albeit not as luxury as some may wish!! Built to Lloyds 100 A1, and maintained to standard for most of her life.Burmese teak planking on Burmese teak frames which are all partnered with bronze straps and all fastened with bronze!!!Why am I selling it??? I got this boat last summer and had a fantastic time in the solent, albeit not enough time.So, begrudgingly she goes up for sale, overriding factor! To many projects and not enough cash, must finish the 35Ft Westerly refit!! etc, etc,!!!She is an absolute stunner, but not without issue, as below.Hull and planking, perfect/ cosmetic Structural framing, perfect Ply bulkheads, bit of rot,Ply sub deck, bit of rot.sails, sailable!!!Engine, perfect, old, rebuilt. Keel off for 100K Refit 10 years ago!!! Yes, that is why I got it, you could sail off around the world tomorrow, but better would be, someone who is practical with wood and likes to fix things. Get the boat, keep sailing and fix bits in between, this yacht is an absolute stunner but business has to come first on this occasion, and the time to tinker is the bit I do not have!!!So, Price!! the Baby Blakes toilet, the Sestrel Compass, and the rebuilt Sabb diesel are probably worth £5000.00 on a good day, with a fair wind???I will not set a reserveI suggest a viewingI Reserve the right to end the auction early as she is advertised for sale elsewhere.I do not wish to sell her for any less than the value of the items listed above, which is a futile amount of money for such a boat, but I am a realist, So,Please no time wasters, I work with boats for a living and have done all my life.This boat is an around the world ticket or just beautiful days of sailing a real classic, she takes no prisoners and goes to windward like a witch.Sad to see her go???And just to put the icing on the cake, the mooring is for free until 31st March 2019.Payment terms.Payment at auction by bank transfer or cashGood luckJim
