For Sale: Golden Hind 31 Cutter Thane of Lochaber


This very well built boat has been in the current ownership for 17 years during which time the retired engineer owner has maintained her to a high standard. She is seaworthy and easy to handle with a good turn of speed and is capable of trans ocean passages, but also able to transit canals with her shallow draft, and dry out due to her bilge keels. The boat is for sale with a huge inventory, and has also in recent years had a number of upgrades.

For Sale: Golden Hind 39.


This boat is for sale on Boat shed and we have been asked to advertise it.  She is believed to be the 7th built. Built 1980.  5 berth Steel built go anywhere boat!  She has a long keel but the ability to safely dry out as fitted with bilge keels.

Fitted with 85hp Bukh in 1985.  Lying Hayling Island.  Asking £38,000 ono....

She is partly fitted out inside and a good range of photos can be seen by visiting the site.

According to the record books there were only ever 6 of these Golden Hind 39's ever made. We are now in a position to be able to offer for sale hull No7.

Ready to launch in 1987, a change of circumstances forced the project to be mothballed and it has stayed in store ever since. So, what we have here is, in effect, a "brand new" 30 year old boat.

There is still some fitting out to be completed but most of the component parts required are included in the sale.

This really is a tremendous opportunity for someone to buy one of these well-respected blue water cruisers for a very reasonable price and in a not too lengthy time frame be ready to set sail.

For Sale:  Atlantic Clipper 'Cidre'

picture awaits


CIDRE is a 36ft GRP long-keel Atlantic Clipper ketch with hull design by Maurice Griffiths who, for those that don’t know, is renowned for his sea-kindly hull designs.

She was built in 1973 by Phillips of Dartmouth, has a Perkins 4108 diesel engine and a swing keel for extra stability and to reduce leeway which is operated from the centre cockpit. Presently laid up at Loch Ryan, Stranraer in South West Scotland on a very heavy purpose built trailer which is included in the sale.

The trailer is used to launch and haul out from the slip with the help of a local farmer and his tractor. There is no charge for using the slip and a mooring can be put down off the slip if required (there is no charge for moorings either).

I have sailed her to the Med and back so can vouch for her stability in heavy weather and it is with some reluctance that I have to part with her due to relocation.

There are no pictures of the interior as everything has been stripped out and put into storage for the winter.

Selling Price £18,000 including trailer, all equipment and accessories.

Although my father and I were not boat builders, I am a time served Fabricator welder the boat it built to a good standard and is very fair. 

It has a slightly raised cabin to allow for greater head room when fitted out it also features a lovely curved transom which I think sets it aside from similar builds, it does have its sail number and plans with it also.

The not so good bit is that it is rusty after being stood outside under cover for some time however the majority is still only surface rust and does have the advantage of removing any mill scale the inside still has mill scale on the plates

I am asking for offers over £3000.

I see you have the GH31 Hindsight listed on your website.

I owned her between about 1987 and 1991. She has a single chine but is registered as a GH 31. She is now in a tidal boatyard on the River Itchen in Southampton, where she has been lying unused for many years. I forget the builder's name, but I don't think it was Erskine.


I gather that she has now been somewhat altered internally. She was not in good condition when I owned her - I replaced the transom and afterdeck, plus several feet of the stringers going forwards. She is sheathed ply (I think it's Cascover) and if that kind of structure is not well maintained it can trap moisture, as had happened. The original ply was also poor quality.


As of last week Hindsight was still afloat, but alas I think sometime soon she will fail to lift with the tide. I suspect she would be free to a good home if someone wants a major project. The decks should be OK as I replaced a lot of the deck ply and sheathed them with epoxy/glass. She has a Yanmar 3QM30 diesel which was in good condition when I owned her.

She has had very little use since then. If anyone's interested, I can put them in touch with the boatyard.

Many hours spent renovating this fine cruising yacht in 2011.

Full serviceable rigging complete with main and a choice of three jib’s, storm, stay and a cruising chute all in good condition.

This boat has been sailed around the British Isles by the previous owner and still carries the full log.  (We want to see that!!!)

Due to my lack of mobility following orthopaedic surgery 'Xercia' has not been sailed for the last few years. She was built by a local professional engineer and is extremely sound and well equipped. I am very much an amateur sailor but I am told she sails extremely well and is very suited to the coastal waters of Suffolk.

She has been stored on land at Aldeburgh for the past five years and has obviously suffered from superficial corrosion. She needs tidying up but serious remedial work would not be needed.

Price £3500.

For Sale: 'Jorrocks II'






Jorrocks II is sadly for sale for family reasons. I have owned her for 20 years and during that time she has undergone an extensive refit, while retaining her original layout. She is one of only two yachts built to this a typical Maurice Griffiths design; the first one was his own (Wild Lone II, now Wild Goose, launched in 1935) who was so admired by a former High Sheriff of Essex that he bought a set of her plans and commissioned the Leslie Harris yard at Burnham to build him a similar yacht. That yacht was Jorrocks II; she was completed in 1936 and was the last to be built at the Harris yard. She is truly a classic.

Jorrocks’ overall length is 35’7", beam 9’3" and draft 4’7". She is a Bermudan cutter, her hull planked in pitch pine below the waterline and mainly mahogany above. The mast is spruce (stripped back, refinished and currently in storage, as she is laid up unrigged in a mud berth on Faversham Creek) and is keel stepped. Her boom is also spruce, the spinnaker pole is Douglas fir and the bowsprit is pine. Internally, she has teak joinery and oak beams. The tiller is of varnished teak as is the cockpit (stripped and re-varnished this summer). There are 2 anchors; a main 35lb CQR and a 15lb CQR. She comes with a wooden dinghy that stows on the coach roof between the doghouse and the mast.

The accommodation from aft consists of a lazarette accessed via a hatch in the deck which contains a fuel tank to starboard. The cockpit has seats port and starboard, with a hand bilge pump situated under the port seat. The companionway is amidships with the engine below it. There is a quarter berth to starboard and storage to port.

The saloon contains a settee berth each side with fresh water tanks below, and storage behind and forward. There is an enamelled Faversham solid fuel stove, a teak table, and the sole throughout is of polished teak planking. A door leads through to the central galley which has a sink and a gimballed paraffin Taylor stove with two burners, grill and oven to starboard. To port there’s a door into the heads with a large basin and loo (mostly Baby Blake, but with a modern Armitage Shanks pan because the original one cracked when a bowl full of crockery fell in it!) There are doors to the fo’c’sle which contains two more berths plus an infill so that a large double berth can be created. There is stowage below the berths, and forward of the berth there is storage and chain stowage.

Ten bronze ports are fitted in the teak coamings, and prismatic deck lights in the deck and cabin top. The deck itself is of thick tongue and groove pine, covered with marine plywood, sheathed with woven rovings and epoxy resin, and painted cream. The engine is a three cylinder Volvo Penta 28hp which has been maintained and regularly started and run.

Jorrocks has various sails of various ages, none very modern, including the mainsail, working and storm jibs, and staysail; she still has her original Egyptian cotton spinnaker which is very effective in light airs. As far as her sailing performance is concerned, she is very well balanced, not at all tender, and speaking as a small person of no great weight I can only say that I’ve never found helming her difficult in any weather. I have sailed her up the East Coast, down to Southampton and most frequently across the Channel to France, Belgium and Holland.

The close-up photographs of Jorrocks’ interior and of the cockpit etc are contemporary (mid-September 2014) and the rest were taken a few years ago (the black and white one was taken during the Swale Match). There are more photos that illustrate an article I wrote about her that was published in Classic Boat magazine, should anyone have access to the June 1997 edition.

I have all the invoices and records of the work carried out during my ownership.

Her asking price is £35,000.

I can be contacted on 07906 848479 (mobile), or 01795 531762 (landline) or email via mefojorrocks at (the mobile number is the only one that’s consistently reliable because I spend time in rural France where I have no internet access). Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more.

For Sale: (Eventide 24?) 'Sans Elan'


This vessel is currently in commission, moored on a trot mooring on the river Frome at Wareham, Dorset, The vessel is for sale due to the owners concern that at 76 he will not be able to continue sailing her single handed for much longer.

As can be seen from the photographs she is sloop rigged with a single long keel and transom hung rudder.

Built of 1/2 inch marine ply over a hardwood frame, she has been sheathed in fibreglass below the waterline and over all the decking.

She is equipped for channel cruising, having a sea toilet. Calor Gas oven with grill and two burner hob. navigation and steaming lights.

Nasa log and depth sounder, electric cabin lights, chart table, sink, two bilge pumps, 9hp Yanmar inboard diesel engine.

Two almost new 12v batteries, fenders, two anchors [with 100ft chain on main], halliards, sheets etc, warps, and cockpit cover.

The two main bunks and two cockpit seats are fitted with foam cushions with washable covers.

Included in the sale are a custom built road trailer and a fibreglass sailing rowing dinghy The owner is happy to arrange a short cruise in Poole bay, in order to show any prospective purchaser what she is capable of before purchase if required.

Editors note.  I have added a pic of her on a trailer now and from that I can say she may be similar in general hull shape, but not like any Eventide I have ever seen. the raked transom and rudder is totally wrong for an Eventide.  Were she double chine she would have been more like a Goosander 23!  Could she be a Yachting World People's boat?

All the above is available for £3,000 or near offer

Please note that the photograph is not a recent one and that the hull is in need of repainting

FOR SALE:-  Golden Hind 31, 'Charisma'. sold as a project.

Photos show the need for cosmetic work...  Can we find a loving home for this much loved, much travelled  craft?





31 footer 'Charisma', building nr. 198. 

Built in Plymouth, UK, by Terry Erskine in 1979.

I bought her one year ago in Holland.

Bought her from a Mr. Korthals, who worked before in the yacht business in the USA, Florida.

He sailed  her solo from Miami over the Atlantic Ocean into the North Sea and Baltic to Scandinavia: Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Germany.  Then to the Netherlands.

He lived on her for a while here, but then met a lady and sailed away with her, selling the boat. 

When I saw the boat in a declining state, it hurt my heart. I had a carpenter with me to check the structural construction.  "Fine", he said, but the shining appearance had gone.

So I shipped her by road on a truck to Belgium and gave her a warm and dry nest in good old Antwerp.

The engine is in the front of the Charisma. It is  a Lister STW. Too rusty to be repaired, the technicians said. The two bilge keels are cut off. Another specialist job.  But I had to spend nearly no money for restoration of the boat,  she needs paint and sweat and of course a new motor. About 500 to 1000 hours to restore her to her originality. But she is still strong.

The masts, sails and all the gear, anchors  are still in good shape. But the deck needs two layers of laminated polyester or epoxy and a finish of poly paint.

I cleaned her inside and stripped all the valuable bits, as lamps, cushions, Baby Blake toilet etc. Have it all in my cottage, outside Antwerp, except of course the hull and Lister engine, it is under the roof of the Royal Yacht Club.

She is now a project with a sound hull, epoxied under the waterline, no osmosis and no hidden problems.

She is ashore in Antwerp/Belgium at the Royal Yacht Club, in a protected hangar.

I'm 72 years old and was a sailor and later a Belgian State river pilot on the  Sea Scheldt River for 30 years.

My price is about 2000 English Pounds to sell her.

For Sale:  Atlantic Clipper 'Existence'

I make no excuses for showing every one of these great pics of her, Ed.

'Existence' is an Atlantic clipper prepared by victor and Olga and family over the course of several years and sailed by them from their home in Serbia across the Mediterranean and then across the Atlantic.   the preparation for this trip can be viewed on the Restorers pages, click here.

We have just completed a check list for the brokers here in the West Indies with the most full description of the boat.

The most wonderful thing about her is that she is just ready to go right now, because we were preparing her for ourselves and did not yet use even a fraction of her potential. That's why, as we've mentioned, we don't want to leave her unattended for a long time, because everything that is new today, will not be that new in some years. She has to sail on!
