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 on07906 848479 (mobile), or 01795 531762 (landline) or email via mefojorrocks at sky.com (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'
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:
Electronic equipment ethic has been ‘simplicity’:
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.

Built in 1968 by Hartwells of Plymouth, she is sheathed ply construction, with long keel and bilge plates. Re-engined in 2001 with a Yanmar 27hp 3 cylinder diesel.

We believe she is probably in the best condition for a wooden Golden Hind 31 that you can find. Her inventory includes:
Mainsail with 2 slab reefs
Roller reefing Yankee and Staysail Jibs
Lofrans electric windlass
Kiwi feathering propeller
35lb CQR anchor, 15lb kedge anchor,
NASA Clipper speed, log and depth,
NASA Clipper wind speed/direction
NASA Clipper GPS repeater
NASA Navtex and AIS.
Navman DSC VHF
Masthead and coach roof navigation lights (LED) Merlin battery management system 2x90ah batteries.
Spinflo cooker with 2burner hob, grill and oven Autopilot Twin 53ltr plastic fuel tanks Radio/CD player Refurbished toilet.
Dinghy and outboard
'Imshallah' is a sound, comfortable vessel capable of good passage making ( she went around the 'pond' in her youth) and will look after you if the going gets tough.
Presently lying at Ilfracombe. Devon.
