Smaug has been a great, fun family boat that can sleep up to 5. Sadly neglected over the last few years and now available for anyone who would like to take up the challenge of bringing her back into use.The hull is sound and the sails are usable with a barely used mainsail . The engine is the main problem and will probably require a rebuild. Many extras such as anchor, fenders ,ship to shore radio, compass and echo sounderAt present she is lying at Wilsons Boatyard , Hayling Island , Hampshire.Buyer must arrange collection or arrange with boatyard to continue storage.On 02-Feb-20 at 10:55:00 GMT, seller added the following information:

If you want to sail it away the boat can be launched from Wilson’s boatyard into the creek. Would cost cranage (£80?). Boat needs attention before it can be sailed. The tiller will need checking. You would need to refit the engine inlet valve and ensure it is shut off. Standing rigging, sails and mast are sound. The running rigging is probably getting on but is serviceable. You would also want to replace the cockpit hatches, just some marine ply cut to shape.
Further on you would need a new sprayhood although the frame is sound.
The forehatch could do with replacing or at least re-fibreglassing and new seals. I would refit the windows to stop leaks. Also you would need new cushions and headlining.
Buyer responsible for collection.
