The Scimitar is a classic one design keel boat, designed by the acclaimed Laurent Giles as a competitive club racer that could also be sailed single handed or cruised as a family day sailer. They are very solidly built and make for a capable and confidence inspiring sail. Blade is in need of some TLC here and there but is excellent value and comes with a heavy duty yard trolley.DimensionsLength: 20 ftLength Overall: 20’3 ftWaterline Length: 16 ftBeam: 6 ftMax Draft: 3 ftDisplacement: 989 kgSpars and Sails

Saro Scimitar hull no.14 built in 1964 by SARO, Anglesey Ltd to a Laurent Giles design. Blue painted GRP hull and deck. Encapsulated long fin keel. Tiller steering to keel hung rudder. She was originally Pt1. Registered and the old blue book is included together with other historic information. A proper MCA Bill of Sale will be completed to her new owner.
She is currently stored at Burnham Yacht Harbour and can be viewed at any time. The yard trolley looks about the right size to be moved on a car transporter or large flatbed but any buyer must make their own mind up on this! With prior agreement storage can continue at Burnham Yacht Harbour at the purchasers cost and berthing is available (although expensive!), there are also numerous local sailing clubs with much more reasonable moorings.
Current Price: £150.00
