Welcome to the
listing for a vintage 1960’s sailing boat, named Dulcibella (inspired from the
sailing boat from the Erskine Childers novel ‘the Riddle of the Sands’). The boat measures
approx. 23 feet from bow to rudder.
I have owned
this beautiful boat now for approx. six years and when I purchased it the
information passed to me from the previous owner was that it was hand built on
the Isle of Wight in the mid 1960’s. The construction is marine ply and resin
with wooden internal ribs and beams. The keel features an adjustable centre
board, which can be raised and lowered from the deck.
It is two birth
with twin gas cooker and sea toilet. The boat comes complete with boom and mast
and sails. There are numerous storage compartments in the cabin under the
seating area and also under the seating area on the rear deck. Access to the
cabin is via removable door and sliding hatch at the rear and access hatch on
The boat is
in very good condition throughout, some small patches of anti-slip deck paint
have come off so ideally a fresh coat of anti-slip deck paint would be beneficial,
hull paint above and below the water line is in very good order. The rudder is
tiller operated and operates freely.
is supplied with the boat; this is an Indespension Super Rollercoaster 7 twin
axle braked trailer. It is extremely well made and heavy duty, the value of the
trailer alone is approx. £2500. It has been recently serviced with fresh moly
slip grease to the bearings and 4 new commercial specification tyres. The boat
is secured onto a custom made wooden cradle; it is also supplied with a heavy
duty vinyl cover which covers the entire upper half of the boat (see last image).
The rear deck
area features an in hull engine mount so you can mount a small outboard engine.
Controls and equipment fitted to the boat include wooden tiller, compass, depth
sounder and knot meter. The cabin features 12 volt lighting. An integral fresh water
storage tank is also fitted.
The boat has
so much character and detail and truly is a one off; this is a very reluctant sale
due to upcoming house move so please only serious bidders and sensible offers only.
The boat is
collection only; you will need to bring a trailer light board and sufficient cable.
Please also bring a suitable vehicle for towing. I would estimate that the combined
weight of boat and trailer to be approx. 3 tonnes.
