A true classic! This boat lives up to its name!

Built by McCutcheon in 1976, this is only 1 of 3 ospreys built by this builder. I have sailed this boat since 2001 and owned it since 2016. The boat is on minimum weight (139.9kg inclusive of centreboard) and dry stored every winter and at times if the summer is particularly wet. This project has been a lot of fun and having the chance to sail it back at the front of the Osprey fleet on the National circuit, fills me with pride. But now it is time to be giving someone else the opportunity to take this boat forward.

I will be looking to undertake a new project, maybe another Osprey, so I may not be leaving the fleet.

I have sailed in this boat in various Nationals and Open meetings the Nationals results are listed below-

2004 - 6th

2006 - 15th

2007 - 3rd

2009 - 1st

2010 - 2nd

2011 - 4th

2018 - 2nd

2019 - 1st

The boat as she stands and it comes ready to sail with: -

  • New John Turner Carbon Rudder (has a couple of small nicks in the trailing edge) and a brand-new carbon fully profiled Mk4 centreboard.
  • A full set of HD sails (a couple of regattas and 1 nationals)
  • A Superspars Carbon mast.
  • A Selden Carbon oval Boom
  • A carbon spinnaker pole
  • Good combi trailer and trolley
  • A good flat top cover
  • A good undercover

Also included in the sale:-

  • Moatt Main and Jib, lightly used twice
  • A spare HD Jib and spinnaker
  • A spare Milanes Carbon rudder blade
  • A spare transom fitting for the John Turner stock
  • A spare undercover
  • A flat towing cover
  • A spare Superspars Alloy mast and boom.
  • A spare Superspars carbon boom.
  • A North spinnaker
  • A P&B Spinnaker

The boat has been completely repainted in 2017 and varnished. I have fitted support struts on the centreboard case to add stiffness and it has a split foredeck so no small spinnaker chute. The majority of the fittings have been replaced and it is now a reliable and successful boat.

If anyone has any questions, would like a trial sail or would like a viewing, please don’t hesitate to give me a call. Mike 0786 601 3454
