Westerly Nimrod 18ft Lifting Keel Trailer Sailor. Designed by Ian Proctor. Unsure of age, they were first produced in 1969 and continued through the 1980s. We had a lovely summer sailing on it three summers ago, but since then it’s been sitting in a field on its trailer unloved. It needs a new home and some TLC. thanks for looking, Helen

The trailer was last used in November 2016 where we towed the boat back from its mooring in Saltash to Newquay, the trailer was fine, but the winch is locked in position and unusable and needs replacing. Since then the trailer has not been moved. The trailer is old and heavily built, but has not been maintained in three years and has some small areas of rust. The condition of the boat and trailer is reflected by the 99p no reserve.
On 17-Sep-19 at 20:20:26 BST, seller added the following information:
the washboards have been in place, and the cushions until recently have been in dry storage, the cushions are red and original to the boat and in a poor state of repair. Inside is moulded GRP only, my husband removed the carpet which lined the roof, intending to replace it, but didn’t get round to it.
On 17-Sep-19 at 20:47:23 BST, seller added the following information:
The hull is watertight and solid, but has a soft patch on the fore deck approx 50cm in diameter where water has leaked through the bronze vent. all of the rigging appears to be present, but the halliards are UV damaged and encrusted in alagae.
It has not been maintained in three years, the condition of the boat is reflected in the price. I would not use the trailer to tow the boat in its current condition.Please message me if you would like more photos. We have relisted her, as the successful bidder from the last auction failed to collect her. I’ve added a buy it now price, the farmer where the boat is stored is away, so it could not be collected until after the 13th October. Thanks for looking, Helen
