Tough times

Resim
We have had a busy couple of weeks here with several sold boats moving around the country to new owners and lots of boats coming on the market that need viewing. Yacht Market Last week saw Eda Frandsen, the 53′ Danish gaff cutter move from the wilds of West Scotland to her new base in Cornwall. Jamie and Penny, who have run the very successful charter business Eda Frandsen Sailing for over 16 years now, have hung up their oil skins and are moving on to different activities. The boat has been bought by experienced charter skipper James Mackenzie and his girlfriend Becky who will carry on taking guests sailing on the west coast of Scotland and South West England. It was not ideal weather for their first voyage as new owners, being forced to put up the trisail after a day at sea! James was almost shocked at how well she dealt with the weather and could hardly believe that after a real hammering there was not one drop of water in the bilge! This is a testament not only to the design bu

There is a lot of interest in rebuilding wooden yachts, especially in these tough times when lumps sums of capital to buy is in short supply but significant payments can be made out of income thus spreading the cost. Yacht Market We are also seeing once again a desire to buy cheap and refit rather than buy sound and complete in the first place. 35 years ago when I started Yachts Markt plastic was all the rage and wood dropped off the radar as being simply old fashioned and out of date. The incredibly quick change from wood to plastic over just 3 or 4 seasons must be taken in conjunction with other socio-economic changes at the time. Motor cars, once a major investment and life-changing purchase had become disposable items, new towns like Welwyn Garden City and Harlow were well established and growing, super-markets, ready meals, social mobility, everything we regard as normal had only recently been firmly established and suddenly it was the turn of sports, especially expensive sports

This Week’s Special

One of the more pleasant aspects of our work is when we discover a boat which really works, a boat which looks different from the usual, a boat with real character. Yacht Market Tara is one such – see Sailing Yachts on our web site – and her history opens a window on yachting across the Atlantic. The following account sent to us by her owner makes interesting reading. It’s not often that in spotting the details of a yacht for sale on the south coast of England, an ‘unknown’ designer’s name is seen attached to such a handsome boat. ‘Wink’ Warner? Who on earth is ‘Wink’ Warner and what is a Warner 33? And so a little investigation seemed called for, which unearthed a fascinating history of both the yacht ‘Tara,’ a Warner 33 and her designer. Boat for Sale Wink’ or to give him his full name, Winthrop Loring Warner is not ‘unknown’ at all and proves to have been a very distinguished American Naval Architect. Apparently extremely shy, he actively avoided seeking the notori

The Joys of Simple Sailing

“Buy the smallest boat possible that will do the job you want” This is a mantra we preach to buyers time and time again. As long as the money is in the bank, it is easy to go and buy a 50’ yacht which provides all the space required to cruise around the coast and across the channel in comfort. Yacht for Sale , World's largest selection of brokerage boats for sale by professional yacht brokers with new, used, sailing, power and super yachts for sale. It is more difficult to find that same comfort in a 35’ yacht and have the imagination to be able to use the more limited space in sensible ways. The cost benefits of the smaller boats are considerable and can be seen in yard and mooring fees, maintenance costs and insurance premiums. Yacht Market The truth is that most people are ‘over-boated’ considering what they actually do with their yachts which is plain to see when we look at all the marinas around the country, stuffed full of yachts that rarely go to sea. Do we really nee

Buying at different ends of the scale.

Resim
Here at Yachts Markt we like to have a wide range of boats on our books, boats from all parts of the scale in price, size, condition and age. It is this variation that makes our business not only attractive for buyers but also for us here in the office. Yacht Market There are two such boats we have for sale that represent very different ends of the scale entirely, but both are attractive propositions in their own right, and although neither are suited to everyone, both will find passionate and excited new owners. Boat for Sale The first is ‘Ezra’ an Isles of Scilly pilot cutter built by Luke Powell, launched in 2006 and featured in his book which was released last year. Her lines are similar to those of all Luke’s boats with inspiration taken from the Scillonian pilot cutters. Used Boat for Sale and Used Yacht for Sale When drawing her lines Luke and the first owner had in mind the adventures of Bill Tillman, with a plan to take her to the far north and beyond, she had to be

Summer Sailing

This weekend, 6/7th July, saw the start of the Dartmouth Classic Channel Regatta, with two days of racing outside the harbour. We were there aboard our 43′ Camper and Nicholson ‘Zircon’, fresh from a 2 week refit and looking very smart. We had high hopes that the quality of th boat would make up for our lack of sharp racing skills, however it was not to be! Saturday brought very light winds which made the beat to the windward mark long and tiresome in the strong tide. Used Boat for Sale and Used Yacht for Sale It was clear not long after the start that the course would be shortened from the original 4 laps, and as it was very few boats even managed to complete 2 before the end of the afternoon. Our maximum boat speed during the race was a heady 3.1 knots which was greeted with utter delight and a celebratory beer.

It has been a busy summer for us here, with the weather playing a large part I am sure. Our purchase of a new boat last winter rather put the pressure on to get her ready for the summer season and take part in some of the fantastic Classic yacht regattas we have on the south coast. Several weeks of stripping and varninshing in the early opart of the season and 2 weeks of hard work in the yard saw our C&N Zircon looking very smart and ready to go racing.

The Dartmouth Crab regatta was the first stop and with a great turn out of yachts and a very relaxed but well organised programme, it was a great few days of sailing and partying. Unfortunately our racing skills didn’t quite match our expectations and we found ourselves making tea ½ mile downwind of the start line when the 5 minute gun went! Sunday was a little more suc

In the last 6 months we have had several owners approach us with boats they wish to sell that are a little out of our comfort zone and do not quite fit our normal remit. The issue for us with these few boats is that they are fibreglass, and being solely brokers of wooden yachts for over 35 years means that taking on a fibreglass yacht is a big step. Boat for Sale When Peter first started Yachts Markt, many of the yachts we were selling were relatively new, but the era of fibreglass had arrived and everybody wanted a yacht in the new material. Fibreglass was expensive but the wooden yachts had dropped in price, and if you sailed into a marina at that time in a 1960’s wooden yacht, people would look and say “poor chap, he can’t afford a modern boat”.

Scandinavian Sailing

For the last few weeks I have been skippering the top gallant schooner Activ in the southern Baltic, and as always over here, have been treated to a delightful fleet of traditional boats in both Germany and Denmark. They do not have so many yachts as we have in UK, but they have a bigger fleet of traditional boats in the form of rebuilt and converted fishing boats and cargo boats. Boat for Sale The Danes produced many thousands of fishing boats, usually built of oak on oak, and mostly with their signature elliptical counter stern that is so exquisitely beautiful. As in UK, many of these boats were broken up on the beaches when the EU changed the fishing rules, but many survived and are sailing today as either charter boats or private yachts.

Yachts Market Archives

After more than 35 years of running the brokerage, we have built up a long list of boats and yachts we have either sold or inspected all over the world. Up until last autumn, these archives were a slightly disorganised mess in the cellar below our office. Yacht for Sale , World's largest selection of brokerage boats for sale by professional yacht brokers with new, used, sailing, power and super yachts for sale. However, after wasting far too much time looking for past information on particular boats, it was decided that something had to be done. This was not a job to be relished, however the task was given to Richards mother Pam Gregson who has spent many hours locked in the cellar going through mountains of paperwork and box loads of old photographs. Boat for Sale The result of four months hard work is a very well organised set of filing cabinets with details of over 5000 boats going back the last 35 years. The paperwork is backed up with many thousands of photos, most of
