Paradox ‘Minnow’ re-advertised at Ebay

Here’s the new description of what is being offered for sale. To see the actual advertisement plus photographs, please visit Ebay.co.uk and enter the following number into the search box:

161437876632. Please note that this advertisement has expired!!


This is a unique opportunity to acquire a super Matt Layden Paradox Sailboat.

I am asking £2,900 for the complete package, i.e., the boat, with all her gear and her road trailer, including 2 portable GPS units, a ship’s compass, an Autohelm 800 and a Honda 4 stroke 2 HP outboard. The boat will have absolutely everything for cruising.

In addition to the aforementioned, she will be equipped with her yuloh, a gimbal cooker, 2 galvanised anchors, chains and warps, 3 fenders, a fixed solar panel, a 12 volt ship’s battery, mooring lines, and an assortment of ropes. She will also have 3 plastic jerrycans with fuel for the outboard, a filtered funnel, and a spare plug and plug spanner.

If I receive offers for less than £2,900 I shall consider them, but gear included in the sale will be negotiable.

 ‘Minnow’s’ De Graaff road trailer is virtually new, and it has only been used twice. I am prepared to let the boat go without her trailer at a reduced price. Incidentally, ‘Minnow’ will be happy on a mooring, even a drying one if it is soft mud or fine sand.

Further information may be obtained by telephoning 07588288060 or by contacting me via the Ebay messaging system.


Payment will be by cash or cashed cheque in UK £s. A 10% deposit will secure the boat, providing full payment is made within 14 days. My advice is for the purchaser to see ‘Minnow’ before agreeing to buy her.

If you are not a resident of the UK, please think very carefully before making an offer, because of the expense entailed in getting ‘Minnow’ to your home country, and the practicalities. I will in no way become involved, or be obliged or liable to assist. My responsibilities will cease on change of ownership. I have a no returns policy.
