Classic 51 years old Wood Sail Boat Kalima. 27ft Folkboat Special, Description, Just Refurbished over 6.1/2 Years, & Ready to go sailing Now !! As recently seen in an article in the August 17, All At Sea News Paper. Reason for sale Due to health problems. She needs, to go to a good new home, and if looked after, will last an other 50 Years or more !!! Built in 1966/67 by Parham Bro’s, and Son’s, launched in 1967 in Emsworth, believed to be no 4 of 8 built. It is very rare to find a boat of this age which is in such fabulous condition. Kalima has been raced successfully for many years in Gosport and the Solent club racing in the 1970s. I was informed she was measured by the Gosport Club Racing Office of the RYA and given the number 3255Y, in 1977, Which she still uses to this day. I still have the original paper work that came with her, and is part of her history. Starting in 2010 after 3 years of neglect, she had a complete hull refit, which is going to keep her in good working order & nice. The Hull was stripped back to bare wood, and a new Mahogany transom 1 ½” thick & new hatches made & fitted. Rear deck, replaced, king plank, 2 main Y floors frames under the mast, and 14frames was also replaced. ( Not sistered), She was re-splined and re-corked. Deck and cabin roof was then covered with the SP System Glass cloth and resin. Many coats of good quality paint was applied. Motor fitted, Yanmar, YSM 8 HP in very good condition with new SS Prop shaft. Wiring was replaced. Much more done, She was re-launched in July 15, & is now based in Southampton Itchen river, on a walk on /off dock, with water & electric. She can still be kept there, with out a problem or moved to your dock or mooring. The cheapest dockage I have found and the best.Sailed regularly in the Solent & Southampton waters. Just had a new fully battened main sail & cover & cockpit tent fitted in.july 2017. 2 New Batteries & starter motor overhauled also July 17. The bottom has been cleaned and painted with 2 coats under coat & 2 coats antifouling, on 18/7/18. Viewing essential to appreciate this delightful Folkboat. Never gets old like a modern one. She is Like a elegant Lady every time you go aboard with lovely welcoming feeling. A sail proving trip could be arranged if you bring crew. More information on request.

She is insured for £15.500.00 You could take over the walk on pontoon mooring in the Itchen river Southampton at a very reasonable price.All information on request.
