Enquire about Parhams Folkboat

Please fill in this form and we will contact you about this boat

SOLD

Built by Parhams of Emsworth in 1963 to Folkboat lines but with carvel planking and a bigger coachroof. Many of these English Folkboats were built, taking the superb sailing qualities of the Folkboat design but increasing the internal volume with a doghouse and longer coachroof. The result was a practical, comfortable and very capable small cruising boat which was very popular. This boat has been in the same ownership for many years and has been well maintained, cruised every season around the West country and Brittany. Up for sale due to health reasons, she is an attractive boat at a reasonable price.

Please fill in this form and we will contact you about this boat

SOLD

The 6th Peter Duck built by Porter and Haylett to the same well respected design. Not a fast boat, but very sturdy with lots of internal volume for their modest length.

Enquire about William Atkin Eric

Please fill in this form and we will contact you about this boat

SOLD

Built in Malaysia to the plans of the William Atkin Eric design, this is a near sister ship to Suhali, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's yacht in which he circumnavigated the globe. Built from Chengai, a very durable tropical hardwood, she had a major refit in 2015 with a new engine, spars and rigging. Now looking a bit neglected, she needs a new deck and a thorough overhaul.

Enquire about Kim Holman Stella

Please fill in this form and we will contact you about this boat

SOLD

Kim Holmans Stella needs little introduction, derived from the Folkboat but slightly larger all round, they have been raced and cruised successfully for over 60 years with an active fleet still on the east coast of the UK. This boat has been the beneficiary of meticulous maintenance by her experienced owner with plenty of upgrades in the last 10 years. She is largely original but with subtle alterations to improve her for racing. Probably one of the best examples available on the market, an honest and very smart boat at sensible money.

Enquire about Herreshoff Islander

Please fill in this form and we will contact you about this boat

SOLD

Designed by Sydney Herreshoff and built by Port Hamble Ltd. Herreshoff aimed to design and small, fast and easily managed but very capable keel boat, and this is exactly what the Islander is. The boats were built here and shipped back to America due to lower production costs and very few examples remained in this country. Light enough to tow behind a moderate car at 1.25 tons, easy to single hand but with a large enough cockpit for a crew. The small cabin has space for 1 or 2 berths to allow weekend camping trips and an outboard mounted over the side is there as a reliable and simple back up. A beautiful looking boat in good sound condition, in commission and being used regularly this season.
