Since the last time this was on ebay I’ve discovered the ignition key has been lost, so that will also need looking at as well as the engine. There is now a picture of a document that lists various things that needed fixing in 2013. The hull was pressure washed in July 2018. She’s sound and dry inside and i’m hoping someone would like her to fix her up and get her sailing again.
This boat was bought 5 years ago, and is a Morgan Giles
design, built by Somerset GRP fabricators in 1983. When purchased in 2013 a full survey was
undertaken and essential work was done as well as some routine work.
In those five years the boat has not been sailed, nor have
the sails been opened out, however, all were serviceable, or in good condition
at the time of the survey. The engine
(Volvo Penta MD1 single cylinder 7hp diesel) has also not been started during
that time and will need some work to get it going.
Internally, the boat is well designed and sleeps 4 in
separate berths in a single cabin. (2 full length and 2 slightly shorter). The wooden furniture and fittings are all
sound and well constructed. It has a two ring gas hob connected to a butane gas
bottle located in a self contained gas locker towards the back of the boat. It
has a sink connected to a large water container operated via a foot pedal. It
also has a toilet but this has not been used in its current ownership.
The picture of the boat in dry dock is taken from the original
advert from 2013 and is included here to show the keel.

It is currently moored at Brighton Marina. Berthing fees are: £2900 per year (which can be paid monthly) or £350 per month if you want less than a year. We’re currently paid up until the end of November so the boat would need to be sold before this date. Brighton Marina also do winter berthing for £200 per month to non berth holders. Since the buyer will not be a berth holder, this may be an option! If you’d
like to view prior to bidding please message me.
It’s a great little little boat, but needs some work to get it
Any other questions, please ask.
Current Price: £200.00
