See all ads from Derek Lyne
DescriptionLovingly restored by us over many years, this original Fairey Marine Albacore, sail No. 784 'DORAI' is now sadly, due to our age, offered to another enthusiastic owner who will appreciate her fine vintage condition and professional all varnished finish.
Included in the sale is everything necessary to immediately commence use for Club racing or cruising, or perhaps better still to place in a museum!
The original hull had been professionally re-decked and re-rigged to more modern standards before we purchased the boat, but we have stripped and re-varnished the hull and decks, and carried out any necessary minor epoxy repairs. The only painted area is the floor which has been treated with non-slip epoxy paint. The varnishing has since been professionally lacquered by Butler Boats to increase resilience.
The equipment includes a Speed galvanised Combi trailer and launching trolley (both in as new condition) Set of full sized racing sails, together with an as new set of Speed sails, specially cut down by Speeds for cruising or racing by lightweight crews. Aluminium mast and boom with good fixed and running rigging. Rain and Sun boom-up cover in as new condition, oars and rowlocks, jib stick and paddle, New mainsheet with bridle, Ratchet mainsheet block with swivel and jam cleat. New plastic hatches and drain plugs to side buoyancy tanks. New transom flaps. Wooden foils in good varnished condition. All ready to go for racing or cruising.
