SORRY, NOW SOLD!



We are about to cross from the Cape Verdes to the Caribbean, where we'll be selling our beloved 37 foot (on deck, 51ft LOA) gaff cutter. She's a home build from the 80s and we renovated her ourselves so there's no manual for this one! My partner and I have been cruising on her in the UK, Med and Atlantic for over a year and a half and she's an extremely safe, comfortable, enjoyable bluewater cruiser. We lived on her in the UK for three years before that - she also makes a great liveaboard. Selling due to work opportunities abroad.

Price: 35,000 USD
Built: 1982, Millbrook, UK
Materials: Ferro cement hull and deck, solid larch cabin top, solid douglas fir spars
Length: 37 foot (on deck, 51ft LOA)
Disp: 17 tonnes
Beam: 12ft
Draft: 6ft

Interior: Permanent double cabin forwards + pilot berth in aft cabin + settee single and double berths in main salon, c-head composting loo, 450L fresh water tankage, 120L deisel, log burner, Taylors paraffin cooker with oven, LED lighting throughout (including masthead tricolour), 6ft 4inch headroom throughout, spacious feel due to flush decks

Exterior: two sailing tenders stored neatly on deck, 200w solar panels, Aires windvane, 25kg Rockner Vulcan on 80m chain, 30kg Delta on 60m chain, 35kg fisherman anchor, manual Simpson-Laurence windlass, 4 man liferaft, fully retractable bowsprit.

Engine: Perkins 4107 - run 250 hours since rebuild

Location: Probably Antigua, but can go elsewhere for sale

Tech: depth sounder, VHF, AIS receiver, EPIRB, Windows based chart plotter

All systems on the boat are simple and sturdy to suit low maintenance long term cruising. She's in good condition though in need of the usual seasonal painting and varnishing. The hull was taken back to bare concrete and fully inspected three years ago - no rust bleeds or blisters at all. The sails are worn but serviceable (the main has a few repairs now), and had we not got this work coming up we would have sailed further!
