I suspect several readers of this blog enjoy trawling through ‘Boats for Sale’ websites. This morning I’ve had an hour or so to spare for doing that very thing, and looking at the Boats and Outboards website I’ve picked out several that are of academic interest to me. I emphasize ‘academic’, because virtually all of them are beyond my reach, but more so, with my present disposition I have no desire to own any of them.
At the lower end of the price range, the Selway Fisher Petite Brise* at £2,500 would appear to represent good value.
For me, the most exciting boat is the Nigel Irens Roxane,** but I believe sailing her solo would not be easy, on account of having to handle up to five sheets. Her two foresails are not self-tacking.
Links to these ‘for sale’ boats are likely to become defunct within days, but the above photos will remain on this blog, courtesy of Boats and Outboards.
