16 feet long, 470 kg displacement, raising iron swing keel
of 180kg. Minimum draft of 30cms.
I have replaced the original Bermudan rig of aluminium
mast/spars & sails with a gunter rig, with wooden mast /spars and reduced size sails, this enables
trailer towing with all spars stowed & single handed rigging/mast stepping
& more comfortable, safer single handed/ family sailing. The jib has a furler, the main has a single
row of reefing points & the mizzen is reduced in size & clears the
storage & use of outboard engine on the transom bracket. The mainsail gaff
spar halyard leads into the cockpit by use of pulley block & jammer clutch secured
to roof of cuddy. The jib furler control line leads into the cockpit.
The cuddy has water-tight bench lockers, a 12v lead acid
battery kept fully charged by a 20 watt solar panel on roof of cuddy. A 12v usb
& ‘cigar lighter’ sockets are in the cuddy. It is possible to sleep in the cuddy. Room for a porta potti. A new stainless steel
tabernacle was made & fitted in 2018. A Lowrance fish finder/depth guage/speed
indicator is fitted in the cuddy.
The swing keel has a pulley system to raise lower keel,
operated from the cockpit.
An automatic/manual 12v electric pump is fitted.
The mainsail & jib are new. A new foresail (not shown in photos) larger genoa type sail, is included. The mizzen was altered in
2019.The age of the boat is a bit of a guess, so please don’t hold me to it being of 1980 vintage.
There is a spare wooden mast, rudder, tiller & bowsprit.
The Indespension trailer would cost over £2400 to buy new, & it is in 1st class condition. It has a rear swing cradle with
rollers to enable easy, hassle free launching & recovery in shallow water.
I recently fitted side docking arms to trailer to help alignment & prevent
tide/wind/waves from moving boat off the centre rollers when recovering on
slipway. The trailer is braked & has a fresh water flushing system rigged
up to connect a hose to flush out salt water from brakes should trailer be
submerged in salt water. A spare wheel carrier & wheel is fitted to
The boat has 2 covers, one is new & covers the cockpit
when the mizzen mast is not erected, & an older one for use when the mizzen
is stepped into place.
Bottom of boat is antifouled with “eroding” antifoul paint.
in the sale are:- 2×7 foot oars, fenders, plough anchor, flares (out of date), mooring warp, various ropes. The honda outboard seen in
the photos is not included in the sale. A genuine characterful day sailer that sails so easily & safely, accommodating a family for day sailing. It will be a real wrench to sell, but old physical injuries are telling now I’m of a certain senior age; single handed heaving & shoving to get it her back into her storage slot is taking me longer to recover.To arrange viewing ring 07443 848334 UK based bidders only, obviously collection only. BACS payment preferred. Please message/ring me to discuss anything & to arrange viewing.
