falmouth pilot 6 tonner

by john bevan

I have for sale a restoration project- complete 1959 built 26ft. 6 ton Falmouth pilot sloop-she is laying ashore at troon yacht haven north of Glasgow in Scotland.

Yacht is called "Leanda"-she is complete-these were basically heavily influenced(copy dare I say!!)of a Laurent giles "virtue" class-a little roomier inside.

There is a fairly modern Volvo engine which turns over freely.

Mast-boom-sails etc.are all there-rigging is galvanized steel and will need changing.

There is rot in the sternpost and rudder-and as she has been laying for at least 2 years out of the water at troon-there will be other rot and problems needing repair.

Interior is quite good-modern gas cooker with oven-sink-pressure water even!!

Forepeak has 2x single bunks-and one pilot bunk in the salon.

There is an anchor-winch and chain.

I have more recent photos which I can send via email.

my email is: captainandcook(at)Hotmail dot com.

basically I want to sell "Leanda" quickly-I have another classic I am working on-and Glasgow too far away for me.

price: £1000 pounds.

The engine/gearbox unit is worth this amount!!

Again-the yacht is complete-needs woodwork and other restoration.
