Matida 8m wooden swingkeel sloop, c. 1998

by Alan Kenworthy
(Heywood, UK)

Fine example of East Anglian craftsmanship, ready to sail, no maintenance problems with this yacht, it is in pristine condition.

Will need only an outboard bracket.

Bargain price for yacht and triple axle trailer, £2600.

Conventional layout like a Westerly Centaur, but interior is gorgeous, high quality woodwork.

Plywood on frames, two chines.

Stainless push- and pulpits, safety rail.

6 hp outboard, serviced.

Fitted liveaboard.

This was someone's pride and joy.

I must sell her, I can't sail any more.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
