For Sale - Solent

Solent has just come on the market after a very recent restoration.

For the past 30 years Solent has been meticulously maintained and no expense spared in any restoration work required.  She is a competitive boat having all the latest “go fast” gear but also likes a gentle sail with easy to manage trim systems.

The eye-catching construction of Honduras mahogany hull and teak deck and floors makes the exquisite craftsmanship of a boat launched in 1965 a delight to behold.

Equipment includes a generous suit of club racing sails and near new spars in excellent condition. She has benefited from a life in a pen with a boarding jetty.

The buyer or buyers will join a small but illustrious group of past Solent owners. 

Many call this craft the “gentleman’s boat” – just cast off the lines and you are sailing.

It is with regret that due to medical reasons the owner places Solent on the market and is hopeful to find her a good home.  There is interest from potential buyers from Sydney looking especially at Barnett yachts, however the owner is keen for her to remain a classic on the Swan River and is therefore seeking interest from local buyers.

The price is negotiable subject to hearing the potential owner’s plans for the boat.

Update on Corinna DK52 

We are currently in possession of  ‘Corinna DK52' which we had planned to restore. However we have too many projects on the go and have her advertised currently as basically free to anyone that wants to take her on and get her back to sailing condition.

Currently she is sitting in a waterfront pool (minus the water) and while a conversation piece we’d much rather see her out sailing.

She is located in Abbotsford NSW on the Parramatta River. The following phtotos show her in situ. There is a little damage to the bow but not too significant. We have drilled a hole in the boat to prevent fresh water rotting out the timber which is in reasonable condition as can be seen from the photos.

We had been discussing having the boat destroyed but will give it one last shot at finding a new home before doing so.  We can assist with getting the boat from its current location to a boat ramp or marine facility or back in the water on the Parramatta River.
