For SALE : New EOG Burgees

New burgees now available, see Burgee page for details.


For Sale: Lone Gull I 'Beachcomber'

As she was a year back

cockpit before restoration...

And how she looked a few years before that...

A 28ft MG Classic! Anyone interested in taking her on? Needs a little work.

28ft on deck, 25ft on the waterline, 10ft beam and 3ft draft. This one has no plate.

Mahogany on elm with oak transom. Johnson Jago built her- started in 1939 but not launched till 1945. She has no centre board, big bit of iron on the bottom with pig iron in bilge, all nicely primed and stowed. The saloon was recently stripped to wood and primed and painted nicely, although I threw out all the cushions!

She is ashore at Odessa yard in Newport on the Isle of Wight and has been so for over a year.

I have done a lot of work on her over years, a new main bulkhead was put in whilst the cockpit was being replaced, ribs have been sistered, bulwarks scarfed and timber heads repaired, I had asked for a new transom whilst I was away working (I am a commercial skipper- or was I should say) but only 3/4 of it was replaced so needless to say, the other 1/4 now needs doing.

Other works required include hatches- all need attention, galley needs rebuilding- blank canvas at present, there's no electrical system or instrument, mast is good but standing rigging was stolen at the yard she was at before Odessa, so let's say she is a project! The hull is solid though and she exudes character and coziness nonetheless.

She has 2 suits of sails, one a bit shabby and one virtually new, all spars and running rigging, bow sprit may need some attention but I refurbished the mast a few summers ago and as we were going to put it back up in the air discovered the standing rigging had "gone missing". I have a note of lengths and diagrams of how to.

She has original compass, navigation lights, oil lamps, Bukh 20hp inboard, engine spars inc internal anode, new pipe work around engine and tanks, a great windless (can't remember the make) pansy charcoal stove, there's lots of paperwork and history with magazine articles etc. um what else can I write? She's a lovely little yacht!

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 atypical 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).

For Sale: GH 31 'Keppel'



Launched 2000

After a 15 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 manoeuvrable in close quarters.

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

Fitted out with an extensive inventory for liva-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 colorifier and shower, opening Vetus windows throughout. She has a 2-way opening forehatch, 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.

She is currently based in Woodbridge, Suffolk. A comprehensive press cutting book containing over 150 full length features may be included.

Price: reduced to £59,950

For Sale:  'Maplin Maid' Maurice Griffiths Bawley.


As she is now, awaiting TLC.

And how she looked a few years back!

Details of Maplin Maid

26ft. Thames Bawley designed by Maurice Griffiths.

Built by Johnson, Jago & Sons, Leigh on Sea. 1965

 6.5 tons. Cutter rigged, with small bow sprit. Sails are white. Variety going back 8 years or so. Slab reefing. Aluminium mast and boom.  Galvanised rigging.

Powered by a replacement 10h.p. Saab Diesel Engine.  Motor 1967, running well - she never misses a beat.

Fully equipped. VHF Radio, echo sounder, navigation lights, electric winch.

Anchor, ropes, fenders, davits.

2 gas rings and grill.

She needs a considerable amount of work to restore her to her former glory as she needs some planking repaired.

I have had her for 26 years and she has been a comfortable, sea kindly sailing boat.

Sadly over the last 4 years, due to my own health problems, she has needed attention that I have been unable to give and this is not going to change.

I really would love her to go to a good home where I know she will continue to give pleasure and be cared for.  I know she would be a really worthwhile project in the right hands.

She is ashore at Tollesbury.

I would like some monetary return for her, but willing to consider any offers. I would be delighted to get £4,000. this is negotiable .

For Sale: 30ft Waterwitch 'Jenny B'



The boat is a "Waterwitch" 30 foot, iroko on oak built by Dempster Smith in 1978; I bought her about 5 years ago from him. In my experience engineers always over engineer their own projects and she is no exception.

She is moored in Lossiemouth Marina and sails Spey Bay and the Moray Firth.

Four berth, 25hp Kubuto engine and dog house for weather.

Changing circumstances means that, unfortunately, she is for sale,

Dempster, the builder, was an engineer and like most engineers when working on their own projects totally over-engineer the product; three pieces of timber when one would do; two radios, two auto-pilots,  brand new spare propeller as well as a complete tool kit etc. anti- fouled, anode, new prop., new batteries and some lines.
The belt and braces builder also believed in spares; complete set,   new spare alternator, two auto pilots, spare sails, etc. She has a full inventory.

She is due out shortly for a version of 'Coppercoat' (10 year anti-foul) which Lossiemouth marina is sponsoring.

Can be seen Lossiemouth Scotland.

She is listed on boatshed,

FOR SALE: Golden Hind 31 'Sea Fever'


Golden Hind 31, GH256 – Sea Fever

CE category A, Ocean.

A truly unique opportunity. Built by my Company, Golden Hind Marine, on the last Golden Hind hull, GH256, before the moulds finally disappeared. She was launched in July 2013 and has been rarely used since then. She has completed only a one week cruise in 2015 and a three week cruise in 2016, so everything is virtually as new and the Yanmar 3GM30F engine has done only 250 hours. Unfortunately, advancing years with its associated problems, lack of use and scarcity of crew have forced me to accept the inevitable and offer her for sale.

She is truly individual craft, built to an exceptionally high specification, for my retirement and has many unique features:

  • Solid mahogany cabin sides which result in a stunning appearance, the subject of many complimentary comments such as (quote) "You have the most beautiful boat in the port, Monsieur".
  • The light airs cutter rig which gives a huge increase in performance over the standard rigs and is beautifully balanced on the helm
  • An extended length cabin giving extra internal accommodation. Encapsulated lead keel (One of only 3 that I am aware of, all produced by GHM), giving enhanced stability and the space for two custom potable grade, HDPE water tanks (186 ltr total capacity) beneath the cabin sole.
  • Hull laminated throughout with Isophthalic, instead of the normally used and cheaper orthophthalic polyester resin, in a temperature and humidity controlled clean room. Blakes SFE 200 osmosis protection and a sacrificial grounding strip to the bottom of the keel applied in the workshop prior to the boat leaving.
  • Double, above the waterline collision bulkheads in the bows.

The specification includes:

Saloon with two full length settee berths (one over 7 ft.) and lockers and bookcases behind. Forecabin with two full length berths, convertible to a very large double with matching infill and cushions. Swinging chain pipe clears berths if required. Hull sides panelled with light American ash.

Nine Gebo category A aluminium framed windows, all opening and with optional mosquito screens. Gebo rectangular opening deck hatch above saloon table. Teak, double coaming traditional "Maurice Griffiths" hatch to forecabin with canvas cover. Bronze portlights to forecabin berths with vanity shelves. 3xCowl vents on teak dorade boxes, with interior stainless steel butterfly shut-off vents.

Galley with two burner stainless steel gas cooker with oven (unused) and separate grill, on gimbals with crash bar and galley strap, twin bowl stainless steel sink with pressurised H&C water, plus separate manual drinking-water tap with carbon filter. Large, high spec, very well insulated and economic Waeco Coolmatic ice box capable of freezing a 2 litre bottle of water!

Heads with stainless steel basin, H&C pressurised water, shower with auto pump-out and Lavac toilet (new 2016). Holding tank with manual switch-over valves and manual overboard or shore side pump out.

Yanmar 3GM30F diesel, (250 hours use) with pressurised H&C water. Aquadrive. Sterling Marine alternator booster. Two 65 ltr stainless steel fuel tanks.

High spec bespoke spars by Sailspar. Single line, in-boom reefing with all sail handling from the cockpit. Sailspar Genoa roller gear. Folding stainless steel mast steps. Echomax radar reflector.

Surveyors Comments in 2014

These are well built vessels originally and this one in particular would appear to have been built by somebody who knew what they were doing.  She appears to have been well looked after.  This vessel is quite suitable for sailing in waters for which she was designed.

Owners Comments

My wife and now 10yr old daughter and I have had the pleasure of sailing Talland since summer of 2014.  We have had some good adventures sailing around the Norfolk coast and some scary ones.  Talland can take some rough weather and we have had fun sailing her.  She has been craned out in the winter and kept well maintained as did the previous owner.  She is good to go for many years.  We are selling as we are looking to sail further afield and longer distances so buying a new boat.  Talland has been a great first time sailing vessel and our learning curve.
