KINGFISHER YACHTS were built Westfield Engineering Ltd in Poole from 1959 to 1978 to a design by R.A.G.Nierop ARAes, AMIBE. Construction was to a very high standard and in GRP.
Full details can be found on the very useful Web site – www.kyoa.org.uk which should be read by potential buyers.
My yacht was produced in 1973 under Sail Number 54 30ft Mark 2 and was well known on South Coast from 2005 to 2010 under name Silverseal of Sussex. Currently registered in my name with UK Small Ships Register as Cookoo she is ‘moored’ ashore in my garden near Andover, Hampshire.
She is a 6 berth yacht with aft cabin, powered by a low hours almost new Yanmar 30hp diesel engine, a 4 man tender and 4hp 4-stroke outboard engine which are also fairly new (no holes or patches). Sail wardrobe includes mainsail with roller furling, storm jib, working jib, genoa and lightweight spinnaker (floater), roller furling for genoa, spinnaker pole and whisker pole. All sails by well known makers.
Equipment includes recently purchased gas cooker/oven, VHF Radio, Furuno GPS, Autohelm Tiller Pilot, compass, high quality battery charger (AC12vDC), two batteries, life jackets/harnesses, LAVAC WC.
As with all Kingfishers she is a twin keeler (NOT bilge keels) so takes the ground easily and bottom section of keels has fuel tanks integrated (not sure if mine are working as there is a new diesel fuel tank adjacent navigation station).
She will need moving with suitable flat bed lorry and 7 ton (approx.) HIAB crane. She could be ready to use in a week or so’s work depending on how soon you want to go sailing or more time fiddling around which I tend to do !
I really don’t have the time to finish her off hence this sale before the winter sets in.
This is bargain price which any Kingfisher owner will confirm.
Do your homework and come and buy her ! PS is not my yacht but same model.
