Fairey Marine Albacore 1049
See all ads from Tim Powell
DescriptionBuilt in 1961, I have co-owned "Gee Whizz" since 1999.
Numerous refits have kept her in working, semi-racing order throughout.
New Macnamara Sails in 2007 have been used on average 2-3 times per year.
Presently lying under cover near Hickling Broad, Norfolk, she has been "Dry Winter" stored for the past 10 years and remains there in good sailing order.
Many fittings replaced including new boom, mainsheet system self bailers and damaged wood.
Road trailer reconditioned with new suspension, tow hitch, launching trolley and chock 2015. New alloy rudder stock and profile blade 2016. Boom up cover included. Much loved and always a pleasure to sail....
Reason for sale?
Now living in Switzerland and the wind on the lake here is not much good for sailing....:(
