Here is an opportunity to acquire a real classic Sea King 24ft long 8ft 3 inch beamed clinker built sail boat with a ‘drop keel set up with a separate head. She was built in the very early sixties in the shed she now sits in but was laid up outside in a local yard for many years. This boat is like a time machine with all her original fittings including a brass heater, lamps, instruments etc: (she even has the china mugs sitting in their racks) I do not want to underplay the scale of this renovation task as this boat is in a relatively sad state but she has little or no rot, is far from a lost cause and in my view far to precious to break up. Accordingly she is being offered at a start price of £1 on a no reserve basis and the highest bidder buys her at whatever the highest bid price. The buyer must arrange transport from Leigh on Sea, Essex SS9 but we are able to launch her for purposes of loading ( alternatively she can be craned directly from our slipway on a road transport method. There is also a back story here as an retired employee of Sea King Boat Builders (from apprenticeship to retirement) still lives locally and actually worked on the build of this very boat. He an immense source of information and would be available for future guidance should it be required and has expressed an interest in following her progress. NOTE: As said this boat has been laid up out of the water for many years so she leaks and will need recalling etc. The sails and many fittings come with her as do a spare engine (condition unknown)This truly is a unique opportunity for someone or organisation with the time and space to bring this lovely old lady back to her original glory and give her a new lease of life. Good luck.
