1983 Newbridge Coromandel Junk Rigged Sailing boat.
Currently berthed at Brighton Marina.
Bilge Keel and requiring only 2’ of water to float (60cm!) makes her a great starter boat, or for exploring tidal rivers.
I’ve owned her since 2015, and have undertaken quite a few jobs, but she’s what I would consider a project boat in her current state.
Berthed in Brighton Marina, with amazing facilities (bathrooms, laundrette etc) and the ability to spend 42 nights a year at their other marinas including Eastbourne, Chichester, Gosport (among others).
Junk rigged with a more modern and larger sail. No standing rigging to worry about as the mast is keep stepped. No need to mess around with multiple sails – a very easy system to learn.
Metz Antenna at the top of the mast.
V Berth at the front, with a fold up sink, and swing out table – plus space for a camp stove.
Headlining has been stripped out, including the old glue (a very messy job!). She now just needs some upholstery carpet applied to the inside (included in the sale).
Electrical hookup connected to shore power within the marina – simply top up the account online, and view your current balance on the app (electricity charged at cost in the Marina).
Wi-Fi Internet included within the berthing rates.
Currently paying approximately £200 a month on an annual contract.
I’ve stayed on her on and off over the last few years. A fantastic place to stay, and for very little money. The bathrooms are immaculate inside the Marina, and there’s a variety of restaurants here.
Includes a few different anchors, and 40m of anchor chain.
A couple of cosmetic repairs could be done to the fibreglass. They didn’t bother me, but are expected on a 1980’s boat.
Needs an outboard (this sits inside a well at the back of the boat and so is locked securely (and not visible while in use).
If you want to maximise speed, then she could do with a lift, scrub and some fresh anti-fouling paint.
Window seals need replacing. New seals are included in the sale and just need to be pushed into place.
Headlining needs to be applied (material included and the messy part has already been done!)
These boats are excellent for exploring tidal rivers, drying out on sheltered beaches, or even venturing on longer adventures (many have taken part in the Jester Challenge and have travelled single handed across the Atlantic to the states.
The hull is the same as the Corribee, the boat Ellen MacArthur used to circumnavigate the U.K.
I’ve absolutely loved having this boat, but have now bought a new sailing yacht together with my girlfriend, and so this one needs to go.
Advertised elsewhere, so I reserve the right to end this auction early.
Current Price: £999.00
