24 ton Berthon Gauntlet

Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter


Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter built at the same yard and in the same year as the large Olga. One of the smallest in the Pilot cutter fleet which makes her no less seaworthy but means she is easier to handle and sail with a small crew. Sailed extensively around Arctic waters in present ownership with adventures in Greenland and Svalbard, recent professional refit with a new mast, lots of deck planks, frames, wiring and other jobs. 7 berths including large double, good headroom throughout. Beta diesel, great rig and plenty of gear. Ready to sail away on the next Tillman inspired adventure.

Sparkman and Stephens sloop


A classic Sparkman and Stephens sloop built by Moodys in 1964 to the highest standards. She represents the pinnacle of wooden yacht design and was show cased by Moodys at the 1965 London Boat Show. Given a thorough refit in 2015 in a professional yard, bottom end of the hull was rebuilt along with new wiring, rigging, upholstery, electronics, complete cosmetics and more. This is a true pedigree classic yacht of the highest caliber, fast around the race course but also easy to cruise with a small crew. A joy to look at and to sail.
