‘Ladybird’ for Sale

For more photos, visit the ebay page

The deed has been done. I made the decision to place my Seawych 19 for sale in the ‘Buy it now’ category of Ebay. You can see the advert by pasting this number160462863471in the search box at The asking price of £2,750 which is a true value based on the age, condition and inventory of the yacht, includes an almost brand new Honda 2.3 outboard and a dinghy with oars, rowlocks and dinghy trolley.

I know this boat is good, because I have sailed her during the past two months in a variety of conditions, the worst being around Portland Bill when the waves were about three metres high and breaking. She ran before them and her buoyancy kept her out of trouble as we passed by the western end of the Shambles Bank. For an account of that day’s sailing visit: .

My regular readers will know that I change my boats on average, every two years, in order to do new projects, which this time could well be building a small boat, smaller than the Paradox I built: see or , plus others featuring ‘Faith’ at YouTube.

Whoever gets this boat will have a bargain. You need only look at new boats of around 19 feet LOA to see that this is the case, and often they do not come with all the necessary cruising equipment, unlike a second-hand one.
