Built in Salcombe in 1954 by local boat builder Roger Ageart, she was commissioned for use as a tender to a local vessel called ‘Vespa’. Later in her life she worked as part of a hire fleet based in Salcombe. Typical very pretty Salcombe design with a nice sheer line and straight stem.
Very nice McNulty Longstone dinghy, clinker planked in mahogany on oak frames. Pivoted centreplate and mahogany rudder. Standing lug rig with tan terylene sail and varnished spars. Custom made SBS galvanised trailer with piggy back launching trolley. Nice little package to get on the water with a small budget yet with a huge amount of fun.
Mahogany on oak clinker dinghy complete with Snipe road trailer, oars and rowlocks. Covered many miles by oar with the present owner on rivers up and down the UK. A pretty dinghy in need of a new caring home
Stunning little Iain Oughtred Puffin sailing dinghy, built in 2005 by Jordan Boats of Fife. Immaculate condition having been lovingly maintained by her one owner, she looks like she came out of the workshop yesterday. Very lightweight construction with epoxy glued marine plywood clinker planks on an oak back bone with grown oak knees and mahogany transom. Ideal for the occasional sailor as the construction will not allow her to dry out and leak as traditional clinker dinghies will. Very sweet lines, nice quality and immaculate condition make this a very appealing dinghy.
Very nice example of the Merron dinghy, the first design to use this hot moulding technique of construction this side of the Atlantic. Gunter rig, galvanised launching trolley. This boat is in very nice condition and has explored rivers and coasts the length and breadth of the country
Although the builder and year of this dinghy are not known, it is thought she was built in Salcombe by Edgar Cove. All mahogany on steamed oak timbers, recent refit with new paint and varnish. Very pretty and in lovely condition, complete with oars and rowlocks.
The original clinker dinghy built as the tender to the last great yacht built in the Fife yard at Fairlie, the Laurent Giles designed 12 meter yacht Flica 11.
Now beautifully preserved and loved, Sunday use only on the Thames. Ill-health prevents further use so the owner would prefer to see the boat on the water regularly than sitting in a garage, hence the very reasonable price.

It is rare to find such a pretty and totally traditional, brand new rowing boat at this very sensible price. Built by Cornish boat builder James Baker. Finished and ready to go. James built her with the plan that a future owner may want to sail so fitting mast, rudder and dagger-board will be very simple.
