18ft Classic GRP sailing dinghy originally designed by Morgan Giles for the choppy waters of the Thames Estuary. A beautifully balanced boat to sail with furling jib and roller boom or slab reefing. Ideal for camping, cruising or racing. Lots of room for friends or children, and very safe with the cruising mast.
She comes with two masts, one for cruising one for racing, three mainsails all very good condition, two jibs, two rudders (one lifting the other fixed) two fixed bilge pumps, six buoyancy bags, oars and rowlocks, hoops for a camping boom tent. anchor, fenders and warps, outboard bracket and Mercury outboard.
The heavy duty Shoreline trailer has been refurbished with new suspension and bearings, mudguards, tow hitch, winch and jockey wheel. New 8 inch wheels for launching and new 10 inch wheels for road use. A single handed mast lowering and raising system has now been fitted.
You could of course spend £40,000 on a 19ft Cornish Crabber, but I tell you this, Quadrille is twice as fast and a lot more exciting to sail.
If your not a member or have never heard of the Dinghy Cruising Association look them up, a wonderful bunch of enthusiastic dinghy cruising sailors and this is the perfect cruising dinghy.
If you are thinking the boat is expensive bare in mind the mast ,sails and trailer are worth that so you get the boat free !!
