A traditional clinker launch built in the early 1950s, we believe on the Isle of Wight. She has room for an inboard engine and two rowing positions. A very pretty boat with nice lines, she would make an ideal winter project for somebody with the necessary skills who is looking to explore their local river or coast next spring.
Varnished motor launch built by Wootton Bridge to a design known as the Dartmouth Launch. Clinker planked in Brazilian mahogany, varnished inside and out. Beta Marine 10hp diesel with only 65 hours running time. On a galvanised road trailer complete with cockpit cover and all over boat cover. As new and immaculate launch absolutely ready to go
Designed in 1948 by Uffa Fox as a smaller version of his highly successful Flying 15. Built in 2017 by Johnson and Loftus of Scotland, she is a work of art and a real example of top quality boat building. She won Best in Show at the 2017 RYA Dinghy Show. She comes with a road trailer and all over cover so is a complete package ready to be sailed away.
A classic Swedish designed half-decked day sailer, mahogany on oak, copper fastened. Laid teak deck with mahogany cockpit coamings, coverboards and kingplank.
The present owner bought her in 2005 and she was re-launched in 2012 after a major refit. 2013 Survey available.
Built by Edgar Cove of Salcombe as a sailing launch. This is an unusual concept for a boat and very practical as she has a modern powerful inboard diesel plus a manageable gunter sailing rig making her very flexible. She is a stable and comfortable boat, capable of sailing at sea as well as inland rivers. Recent refit with all new cosmetics. Very pretty, unusual and well built boat in ready to sail condition.
Wooden Ships comments on this clinker launch
Built in the 1960's by Stanley Goodwin and Son of Kidderminster, this boat has undergone a comprehensive restoration in the past year and is now ready to go and is looking for a new owner who will enjoy her this summer. She has the benefit of a cuddy to protect from the elements and two full length berths. She is the perfect boat for exploring rivers and lakes.
Based on an Ian Proctor National 18 hull, built for the present owner by Bourne Plastics. Fitted with a custom deck layout and an easily managed modern Lugsail yawl rig with carbon fibre spars. Proved to be a very fast boat for classic regatta racing and coastal cruising with overall wins at Fowey and Falmouth classic yacht events. Comes with a full cover, road trailer, ground tackle and a tender. Perfect for someone looking to get involved in the classic regattas without the cost of a large yacht but still with the ability to win trophies.
Built in Scotland in 1994, has been ashore for a while but minimal work required to get her launched. Huge area of deck space and cockpit, perfect for family days out in the sun. Small cabin with a heads and 2 berths to keep the children sheltered, ideal family summer boat. Inboard Yanmar diesel means she can simply be used as a large motor launch. Light enough to be towed behind a reasonable vehicle which will significantly lower running costs.
Professionally built Arctic Tern designed by Ian Oughtred. Planked in Scottish Larch all copper rivet fastened. Fitted with a bermudan sloop rig, all new in 2016, designed by Oughtred specifically for this boat on the request of the owner which makes her easier to handle alone. Good road trailer with new bearings in 2016. Very attractive and eye catching boat in very nice condition.
