For Sale: GH 31 'Keppel'




Launched 2000

After an 20 year happy association I’m thinking the unthinkable and floating Keppel on the market. She is believed to be the last built, but two. Home completed, the main core of the boat was constructed by Golden Hind Marine. She was the first of the last three to have the GRP aft section and cockpit as well as a GRP heads/shower and she was first to have the new balanced rudder. This makes her very maneuverable in close quarters.

Keppel has featured regularly in PBO and, to a lesser extent, Classic Boat.

Fitted out with an extensive inventory for live-a-board cruising in hot climates particularly, she makes a cool; and comfortable home which she combines with good sea-keeping qualities. She has a sprightlier than normal performance courtesy of her larger than normal sail plan and aqua-dynamic foiled bilge plates. These plates have double the normal footprint width that, consequently, resist cheese-wiring into soft mud. Importantly, they are free of vibration at all speeds.

She is also fitted out for inland waterway cruising.

There is a very comprehensive spec’ which can be emailed on request. Included is a Nanni 29 engine (2000 but removed from boat and totally overhauled in 2013), a calorifier and shower, opening Vetus windows throughout. She has a 2-way opening fore hatch, two bow anchor systems, independent of each of, for security and a kedge for Med mooring bows-to. She carries a large tan genoa headsail but a demountable inner fore-stay is available for the snug heavy weather rig. To keep her in ‘60’s genre she has gold anodised spars.

Recent major overhauls:

  • Engine removed and totally overhauled by Peter Norris in his workshop in 2013.
  • Mast fixed rigging renewed and much of the running renewed by Larkmans in 2013.
  • Treadmaster renewed buy Robertsons boatyard in late 2012.

Electronic equipment ethic has been ‘simplicity’:

  • Nasa Sting Ray echo sounder (2000), but a new one can be suppled for when it croaks
  • Nasa AIS transponder (2010)
  • Standard Horizon DSC VHF (2010)
  • Garmin 152 GPS (2010)
  • Nasa AIS Radar (2010
  • Voltwatch volt monitor (2000)
  • Navico 300 tiller pilot (2000)
  • Plastimo illuminated bulkhead compass (2000)
  • Two 110amp/hr batteries, switched (2013)
  • Navtex Target Std weather information (2000, but a new one can be supplied)
  • Shore power (10amp battery charger), three AC power sockets, HW immersion. (2000)
  • Demountable 30W solar panel (for rigging above bimini for max exposure - 2005)
  • Stirling alternator regulator to increase battery capacity and charge rates (2007)
  • LED lights

Her light and airy interior is fitted out using teak and iroko.

A comprehensive press cutting book containing over 150 full length features may be included.

sale price down to £49,950 (to reflect the new reality of life)

Keppel is currently based at Aigues Mortes (S. of France) but is expected to relocate to Brittany during summer 2021.

For Sale:  30ft Waterwitch Sloop, 'Blackwater Witch', ex 'Dougaljo'

'Blackwater Witch' as she was, as 'Dougaljo', photo by John.

'Blackwater Witch' is sadly  up for sale, Polly is selling after the loss of her John who has nearly fully restored the boat.

When she was called 'Dougaljo' I sailed many hundreds of miles in company with her, to the Netherlands, around the Essex rivers and even to the west country..

Sadly she  was eventually sold by our friends Doug and Jo, when they decided to 'swallow the anchor', after which she had a little of a chequered life.  The first new owner did a good job of restoring some woodwork on her, replacing bits around the galley and adding a lot of gear inside to make her into a floating bachelor pad.  Sadly he did not keep her very long and sold her to a chap who actually used her as a caravan, first afloat in Tollesbury marina,  then later in the car park at the back of the cruising club.

I saw her there  some years back with the indignity of a TV antenna fixed to the mast!

He eventually advertised her for sale, but had allowed rain to get inside and rot to get into a small area on the stbd quarter and the bottom planking. A survey turned up the soft patches....

Enter John and Polly.  They spent a great deal of time, effort and money fully replacing frames and planking, part of the transom too.  Sadly John passed away just before completing her.

From what I have seen she is strongly epoxy glued with decent timbers and the damaged stbd planking repaired and epoxy coated.  She needs sanding and filling to fair off the underside then repainting, a months work if a determined person worked on her full time.

At the moment she is under a very substantial tarp at Tollesbury  and she can be finished off there, there is more ply and fixings included, stored locally.

The restoration pictures by Polly


These of her under the tarp by John, crawling under her last Sunday!

Looks as if it just needs filling and fairing




Launched in 1993 after 13 years in the build by her first skilled owner,  (Doug) fitted-out to a very high standard and surveyed in 2014, Blackwater Witch is now over  two-thirds of the way through a restoration with just  some structural repairs needed port-side aft.

She has great accommodation for her size and is potentially a lovely cruising boat. She was very heavily built with all the best materials, teak frames, silicon bronze screws, mahogany superstructure and solid mahogany transom.

Self-draining cockpit with tiller steering, Bermuda sloop rig with small bowsprit and triple keel, 4-berth internal layout in 2 cabins with around 5’ 10” headroom. Slab reefing mainsail with green mainsail cover.

Genoa roller reefing system by Rotostay with furling no. 1 Genoa and blue UV strip. All sails are in very good condition.

Varnished wooden mast and boom with stainless-steel standing rigging (all 1993).

Lister Petter 20hp twin cylinder Diesel engine with heat exchanger. 25 gallon stainless-steel fuel tank with consumption per hour of around 1/3 gallon at cruising speed of around 5 knots. Shaft drive 3-blade propeller. Alternator charging to 3x 12volt batteries. Deep sea seal and cutlass bearing fitted 2014. Fuel capacity 25 gallons,

Freshwater 35 gallons. Pushpit and pulpit, green spray hood, green cockpit enclosure with windows and zips, white aft wrap-around dodger, side deck stanchions, full cover, stainless-steel boarding ladder on transom, teak cockpit gratings, hand-crafted tiller, Lewmar 24 sheet winches, 2 Lewmar halyard winches on mast, outboard bracket on pushpit, crafted wooden davits, CQR main anchor with chain and warp, manual anchor windlass, 2nd bow anchor with new chain and warp, stainless-steel and wooden bollard on foredeck, bowsprit with twin bow rollers, various mooring warps and fenders.

FOR SALE:  Golden Hind 31, 'Ceilidhe'





This boat suffered the ignominy of being launched at Tollesbury and promptly sinking! The owner sold the recovered boat, less a bilge keel to Nick, who used to own her years ago and could not bear to see her in this condition. 

Nick has painstakingly cleaned and restored her, not only replacing the missing keel and repairing the hull but also tearing out any rot he found on deck etc. and replacing all with new.  All the electrics removed and replaced.  The engine removed and replaced. Nick tells us the motor is not fully connected but he has paid someone at the yard to finish the installation. 

All the soft furnishings scrapped and replacing them  is about the last job to do, Nick tells us, before she is ready to go.

Sadly Nick has now had an accident and is unable to finish the boat, so is sadly offering her for sale as a 7/8 finished project. 

Ashore at Rye in Sussex.

Asking £4,000 or very near offer.

Could be Free!!!!

So if you are up that part of the world, or have the wherewithal to transport her away, contact Martin.
