Wooden Ships Comments on this North Quay 19
Built by North Quay Marine in 2008 to a Ted Spears design, the largest in the range of open day boats built by North Quay at the time.
Bought by the present owner in 2016 from the first owner who had had the boat maintained to a very high standard as the boat was frequently used by North Quay as a display boat at shows and festivals. In 2017 she had work done to the deck, complete re-varnish and a professional re-spray of the topsides.
The North Quay 19 is a very clever design resulting in a versatile, capable but easy to sail day boat, with a huge cockpit giving space for 6 adults while sailing but also offering quite exciting performance, especially when sailing off the wind.
The trailer sailer concept is more popular now than ever before, and with a total weight of less than 1.5 tons she can be towed behind a moderate sized family car making her very versatile. Storing a boat at home over the winter and even being able to launch on a slipway will reduce yearly running costs enormously while still having a very pretty and fun boat to sail.
Her accommodation is limited but she can sleep 4 adults under the camping awning giving scope for family weekends away. Her exceptionally shallow draft with the centreplate up allows access to the heads of the creeks where nobody else will be anchored overnight.
A very smart and well kept example of this popular day boat, complete with everything required to get sailing immediately.
