Boat Sales (Inboards)

caveat emptor!

This service offers members the chance to advertise their boats and other goods. The SOA does not have any knowledge of the condition of the items advertised and cannot accept any liability for the outcome of any transaction which might occur because of the use of this part of the website. To place an advert go to the "How to sell" page. Should you not want to deal with the boat sale personally, Cornish Crabbers offer a professional refurbishment and brokerage service for used boats. Please also note that the prices quoted are in many cases negotiable so I do not add the "ono" tag!

795 1999

Ashore at Looe, in South East Cornwall.

Gallivant, a Shrimper 19, Mk II, Classic cabin layout, self draining cockpit.

I commissioned this boat in 1999, and it was delivered and rigged in Looe by Cornish Crabbers, along with a full inventory of yard supplied and fitted optionals.

Retiring from sailing; so much included in sale.

Nice condition, kept on fore/aft mooring in harbour, and ashore in the Winter. Used local cruising (too little). [I point out a repaired 3 ft barnacle score to the port side gelcoat surface; the long-standing effective repair is visible. There is an approximately 7 inch area of star crazing on the port side just below the teak rubbing strake; side impact by a dinghy. Surveyor advised cosmetic and advised against patch repair].
