For Sale: 'Jorrocks II'






Jorrocks II is sadly for sale for family reasons. I have owned her for 20 years and during that time she has undergone an extensive refit, while retaining her original layout. She is one of only two yachts built to this atypical Maurice Griffiths design; the first one was his own (Wild Lone II, now Wild Goose, launched in 1935) who was so admired by a former High Sheriff of Essex that he bought a set of her plans and commissioned the Leslie Harris yard at Burnham to build him a similar yacht. That yacht was Jorrocks II; she was completed in 1936 and was the last to be built at the Harris yard. She is truly a classic.

Jorrocks’ overall length is 35’7", beam 9’3" and draft 4’7". She is a Bermudan cutter, her hull planked in pitch pine below the waterline and mainly mahogany above. The mast is spruce (stripped back, refinished and currently in storage, as she is laid up unrigged in a mud berth on Faversham Creek) and is keel stepped. Her boom is also spruce, the spinnaker pole is Douglas fir and the bowsprit is pine. Internally, she has teak joinery and oak beams. The tiller is of varnished teak as is the cockpit (stripped and re-varnished this summer). There are 2 anchors; a main 35lb CQR and a 15lb CQR. She comes with a wooden dinghy that stows on the coach roof between the doghouse and the mast.

The accommodation from aft consists of a lazarette accessed via a hatch in the deck which contains a fuel tank to starboard. The cockpit has seats port and starboard, with a hand bilge pump situated under the port seat. The companionway is amidships with the engine below it. There is a quarter berth to starboard and storage to port.

The saloon contains a settee berth each side with fresh water tanks below, and storage behind and forward. There is an enamelled Faversham solid fuel stove, a teak table, and the sole throughout is of polished teak planking. A door leads through to the central galley which has a sink and a gimballed paraffin Taylor stove with two burners, grill and oven to starboard. To port there’s a door into the heads with a large basin and loo (mostly Baby Blake, but with a modern Armitage Shanks pan because the original one cracked when a bowl full of crockery fell in it!) There are doors to the fo’c’sle which contains two more berths plus an infill so that a large double berth can be created. There is stowage below the berths, and forward of the berth there is storage and chain stowage.

Ten bronze ports are fitted in the teak coamings, and prismatic deck lights in the deck and cabin top. The deck itself is of thick tongue and groove pine, covered with marine plywood, sheathed with woven rovings and epoxy resin, and painted cream. The engine is a three cylinder Volvo Penta 28hp which has been maintained and regularly started and run.

Jorrocks has various sails of various ages, none very modern, including the mainsail, working and storm jibs, and staysail; she still has her original Egyptian cotton spinnaker which is very effective in light airs. As far as her sailing performance is concerned, she is very well balanced, not at all tender, and speaking as a small person of no great weight I can only say that I’ve never found helming her difficult in any weather. I have sailed her up the East Coast, down to Southampton and most frequently across the Channel to France, Belgium and Holland.

The close-up photographs of Jorrocks’ interior and of the cockpit etc are contemporary (mid-September 2014) and the rest were taken a few years ago (the black and white one was taken during the Swale Match). There are more photos that illustrate an article I wrote about her that was published in Classic Boat magazine, should anyone have access to the June 1997 edition.

I have all the invoices and records of the work carried out during my ownership.

Her asking price is £35,000. XXXX drop the price to £27,500 but would be happy to discuss price with anyone genuinely interested.

I can be contacted on 07906 848479 (mobile), or 01795 531762 (landline) or email via mefojorrocks at (the mobile number is the only one that’s consistently reliable because I spend time in rural France where I have no internet access). Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more.



For Sale: GH 31 'Keppel'



Launched 2000

After a 15 year happy association I’m thinking the unthinkable and floating Keppel on the market. She is believed to be the last built, but two. Home completed, the main core of the boat was constructed by Golden Hind Marine. She was the first of the last three to have the GRP aft section and cockpit as well as a GRP heads/shower and she was first to have the new balanced rudder. This makes her very manoeuvrable in close quarters.

Keppel has featured regularly in PBO and, to a lesser extent, Classic Boat.

Fitted out with an extensive inventory for liva-board cruising in hot climates particularly, she makes a cool; and comfortable home which she combines with good sea-keeping qualities. She has a sprightlier than normal performance courtesy of her larger than normal sail plan and aqua-dynamic foiled bilge plates. These plates have double the normal footprint width that, consequently, resist cheese-wiring into soft mud. Importantly, they are free of vibration at all speeds.

She is also fitted out for inland waterway cruising.

There is a very comprehensive spec’ which can be emailed on request. Included is a Nanni 29 engine (2000 but removed from boat and totally overhauled in 2013), a colorifier and shower, opening Vetus windows throughout. She has a 2-way opening forehatch, two bow anchor systems, independent of each of, for security and a kedge for Med mooring bows-to. She carries a large tan genoa headsail but a demountable inner fore-stay is available for the snug heavy weather rig. To keep her in ‘60’s genre she has gold anodised spars.

Recent major overhauls:

  • Engine removed and totally overhauled by Peter Norris in his workshop in 2013.
  • Mast fixed rigging renewed and much of the running renewed by Larkmans in 2013.
  • Treadmaster renewed buy Robertsons boatyard in late 2012.

Electronic equipment ethic has been ‘simplicity’:

  • Nasa Sting Ray echo sounder (2000), but a new one can be suppled for when it croaks
  • Nasa AIS transponder (2010)
  • Standard Horizon DSC VHF (2010)
  • Garmin 152 GPS (2010)
  • Nasa AIS Radar (2010
  • Voltwatch volt monitor (2000)
  • Navico 300 tiller pilot (2000)
  • Plastimo illuminated bulkhead compass (2000)
  • Two 110amp/hr batteries, switched (2013)
  • Navtex Target Std weather information (2000, but a new one can be supplied)
  • Shore power (10amp battery charger), three AC power sockets, HW immersion. (2000)
  • Demountable 30W solar panel (for rigging above bimini for max exposure - 2005)
  • Stirling alternator regulator to increase battery capacity and charge rates (2007)
  • LED lights

Her light and airy interior is fitted out using teak and iroko.

She is currently based in Woodbridge, Suffolk. A comprehensive press cutting book containing over 150 full length features may be included.

Price: reduced to £54,950

FOR SALE: Golden Hind 31 'Sea Fever'


Golden Hind 31, GH256 – Sea Fever

CE category A, Ocean.

A truly unique opportunity. Built by my Company, Golden Hind Marine, on the last Golden Hind hull, GH256, before the moulds finally disappeared. She was launched in July 2013 and has been rarely used since then. She has completed only a one week cruise in 2015 and a three week cruise in 2016, so everything is virtually as new and the Yanmar 3GM30F engine has done only 250 hours. Unfortunately, advancing years with its associated problems, lack of use and scarcity of crew have forced me to accept the inevitable and offer her for sale.

She is truly individual craft, built to an exceptionally high specification, for my retirement and has many unique features:

  • Solid mahogany cabin sides which result in a stunning appearance, the subject of many complimentary comments such as (quote) "You have the most beautiful boat in the port, Monsieur".
  • The light airs cutter rig which gives a huge increase in performance over the standard rigs and is beautifully balanced on the helm
  • An extended length cabin giving extra internal accommodation. Encapsulated lead keel (One of only 3 that I am aware of, all produced by GHM), giving enhanced stability and the space for two custom potable grade, HDPE water tanks (186 ltr total capacity) beneath the cabin sole.
  • Hull laminated throughout with Isophthalic, instead of the normally used and cheaper orthophthalic polyester resin, in a temperature and humidity controlled clean room. Blakes SFE 200 osmosis protection and a sacrificial grounding strip to the bottom of the keel applied in the workshop prior to the boat leaving.
  • Double, above the waterline collision bulkheads in the bows.

The specification includes:

Saloon with two full length settee berths (one over 7 ft.) and lockers and bookcases behind. Forecabin with two full length berths, convertible to a very large double with matching infill and cushions. Swinging chain pipe clears berths if required. Hull sides panelled with light American ash.

Teak, double coaming traditional "Maurice Griffiths" hatch to forecabin with canvas cover.

Galley with two burner stainless steel gas cooker with oven (unused) and separate grill, on gimbals with crash bar and galley strap, twin bowl stainless steel sink with pressurised H&C water, plus separate manual drinking-water tap with carbon filter.

FOR SALE: Eventide 26 'Goldcrest'.  Sail No: 1439


'Goldcrest' as she was 8 years back

'Goldcrest' has been laid up ashore for 8 years.

Built by a semi-professional as a traditional easily manageable family cruising yacht from 1978 and launched 1982. Hull, deck and frames constructed from marine ply sourced from Robbins, fastened with Cascophen and stainless steel screws. A greenheart and cast lead keel with steel bilge keels for taking the ground.

She  is the standard cutter rigged with a bow sprit, a vanished, laminated curved iroko stern, iroko cockpit and coach roof which is the extended version to improve her appearance and increase head room below. The rubbing strake is also iroko.

The stem is iroko laminated and varnished.

Decks are all finished in grey Tread Master.

Mast, boom and bow sprit are all solid varnished Douglas Fir.
