Ian Oughtred Caledonia Yawl


The Caledonia Yawl has become one of Ian Oughtred's most popular designs, known as seaworthy and capable boats with the elegance and pleasing sailing characteristics we would expect. Being half decked, they are capable of taking far more weather than a normal open dinghy which is why they are known for their coastal sailing exploits. Built by Johnny Burke in Scotland, this is probably one of the best quality boats of her type to be found, finished to a very high spec and complete with a new road trailer. Used only a handful of times, she is as new and ready to go
