Wooden Ships Comments on this Hillyard 9 ton Sloop

9 ton Hillyard built by Hillyards of Littlehampton in 1961.  Typical of their 9 ton design with a canoe stern, centre cockpit and split accommodation.

Professional refit in 2020 including replacement of the keel bolts, new standing rigging and re-painting the bilges.

The 9 ton Hillyard was the original family cruising boat and was built in very large numbers, they offered 2 sleeping cabins plus the saloon, up to 6 berths and a spacious saloon.  The central cockpit is deep, safe and spacious.  These boats are not fast but are comfortable and safe, ideal for family cruising and the design features have been copied time and again in modern yachts.

The canvas sprayhood and zip up back means the cockpit can be made totally enclosed giving another dry communal space.

Although looking a bit scruffy, this yacht has had professional maintenance in recent years and represents a lot of boat for the money.
