30ft Gaff cutter with inboard engine. Her present owners, commissioned her design and build by the late Ted Spears of North Quay Marine, Conyer, Kent.2002.
She is RCD design coded for category "B" Offshore.
In 2012 she had an extensive refit and a full service carried by the original builders.
She carries a Traditional Gaff Cutter rig with topsail, 28hp Beta Marine diesel engine, Western Red Cedar strip planked construction epoxy sheathed, inside and out. A long keel with a centreboard, straight stem and bowsprit ( which elevates up when on a restricted mooring.)
She has been sailed almost 14,000 miles, cruising much of the East Coast of UK and the near Continent. During their 18 year ownership the owners have made modifications to the vessel for their own comfort and convenience, she is fully set up for long distance cruising and can be self sufficient for long periods of time.
She has been meticulously maintained and looks as good now, as she did when new. She sailed all year round. She has now been moved to her Winter berth afloat at Chatham Maritime Marina, Medway, ME4 4LP
Due to medical reasons the owners are now forced to sell this very special Little Ship
