Ian Oughtred Tammie Norrie class


The Tammie Norrie is in our opinion one of Oughtreds best designs, easily rowed, capable of carrying a decent load and beautiful to handle under sail. This one was built by the owner to a good standard and has been lightly used on the Cumbrian lakes. Recently re-varnished and ready to go, she is on a galvanised road trailer with a piggy back launching trolley all in good condition. Great little package to get afloat this summer without breaking the bank.

  • Designer: Ian Oughtred
  • Year: 2014
  • Location Cumbria
  • Length on deck: 13'6"
  • Beam: 4'5"

Classic motor launch


A very interesting motor launch, built on the Thames but spent most of her life working as a passenger launch on the River Dart. Laid up in her current barn for over 40 years, she is in remarkably good condition and a very rare find indeed. Complete apart from the engine and engine box, she will make a very beautiful and eye catching motor launch once refitted.

Comes with a very good road trailer, ready to tow away. Lots of original features and fittings including all chromed bronze deck gear. An exquisite boat in lovely condition, a very handy size for messing about on the river.
