ft Weight 220 lb
Swallow boats now only offer larger boat kits but it cost £3000+.
The kit was purchased almost ten years ago and work was started but
discontinued at an early stage due to illness. I have reluctantly
decided that I am unlikely to ever restart the build.
The plywood hull panels have been cut out and the scarf joints to
join them all cut. The longest panels are 8ft and the next stage is
to join them to make the longest panels nearly sixteen ft. Completing that stage will
make it difficult to transport to a new owner so this is the moment
of decision. At the moment it is effectively a flat pack which needs
a flat bed of 8ft X 4ft to transport. The mast can be carried on roof
All kit to complete and sail the boat is included, bar paint or varnish of your choice. This is the
centreboard rather than daggerboard variant. The wood, sails and
other fittings have been stored in a completely dry environment. The
resin for fibre-glassing is unused and has been stored at room
temperature. West Systems tell me there is no reason why it would
have deteriorated but that part I cannot guarantee.
I have printed and bound the detailed online manual for construction.
Pre-bid inspection welcome. NOTE; the photos are of what the completed built should look like rather than of its present state.
Clearly this item cannot be posted; the buyer will have to collect.
