2018 Septembre, A Vendre - For Sale Extension 1/4 tonner 'Mochyn Du' (GBR-6143, former 'Minestrone'). She finished 20th at the 1975 Quarter Ton Cup in Deauville (France). Great looking boat, lying Poole.
Designer Jac de Ridder (Van der Stadt family and many well-known boats to his name). Built 1975 in Poole by George Stead (Southern Ocean Shipyards). Formerly a Mast-Head Rig and rescued by Rupert Holmes (PBO) and was featured as a PBO project boat in 2009/10. 3 times competitor in Quarter Ton Cup; 3 years as a project boat since 2015 - launched this spring. New, heavier, keel - moved aft to original de Ridder specs; New mast and boom - 7/8th rig - Selden, twin spreader, excellent condition, keel-stepped, foot moved forward to the original de Ridder fractional specs. New Rudder - spade, transom-hung, ash tiller, spinlock extension; Sails - black laminate One Sails - used only a handful of times and in 'as new' condition and shape. Main with one reef, loose-footed. 2 x non-overlapping foresails - No1 and flatter/heavier No2. Storm jib - all hanked. Immaculate new Hyde AP kite and launch bag. All new standing and dyneema running rigging, Selden spi pole ends, lightweight, unbreakable 2 x refurbed/serviced Barlow 20 2-speed winches, harken tracks/blocks, All systems re-designed, fittings top quality Harken/Selden etc - kicker both sides, jib barber-haul (in and out) and spinnaker tweakers. Dyneema backstay 48:1 with flicker 2018 IRC .888 (still in Corinthian Class for QTC/Cowes Week) and VPRS .879; Shrouds plates upgraded and moved fully outboard Re-painted inside and out New cushions and cooker (2 burner Origo alcohol stove) small but effective galley area.....I have prepared 3-4 meals per week on it. Origo is hot enough to make curry/stir fry! All extraneous weight removed leaving plenty of storage space for sails/engine and access to all fittings....which have been mostly replaced and-sealed. New s/s O/B bracket - 3.5 Parsun 4-stroke - being serviced at present. New hatches and windows fitted and re-sealed - boat now water-tight. Lifebuoy c/w light, throwing line, bolt croppers, first-aid kit, flares (in date), harnesses, LED nav lights/internal. Solar-powered tacktick wind, depth and speed. Hull taken back to GRP, faired, epoxied and antifouled for season. Early FRP - very stiff and and no damage - full structural survey this year - passed with flying colours - and checked for moisture in hulll......was dry as a bone; New anti-slip paint throughout, Space for Porta-loo (presently occupied by bucket!!); Completey different boat from previous incarnations - handles superbly - even with complete novice crew, have won races in Poole against proven oppositon. My work precluded her going to QTC. Simple rib bulkheads and open plan layout with wide beam make for lots of room down below and coachroof gives good head room. Surprisingly little moisture due plywood and epoxy decks.....also stays cool in recent heat and retains heat in winter. Bunks can convert to a double bed! Yard cradle also available. Only selling (very reluctantly) as I have had to move job and she is no longer required as a week-day 'bed-sit' - and wife wont let me have 2 boats back in Wales! A very cheap way into the exclusive QT circuit. 15000£, pictures from adverstissement,
