Broker's Comments

'Traditional rugged simplicity' is the phrase that sprang to my mind when asked to describe this rather unique yacht. Not that 'character gaffers' are at all unique these days; the popularity of Drascombes, Shrimpers, Crabbers et al testify to their long standing popularity but this one is just a little bit different. Moulded by a Cornish fishing boat builder and fitted out by Newlyn fisherman turned boat builder Nick Henshall, she shares many attributes of an inshore fishing boat - heavy displacement, flush decks and deep draught to pick on just three. Measuring just over 19' on deck, with her generous 8'+ beam and length over spars of 30' she feels, both above and below decks, like a much bigger craft. Her displacement of 3.5 tonnes is achieved partly through her internal ballast of rubber encased lead ingots adding 1.5 tonnes. Heavily laid up and with beaching legs she is ideally suited to the challenging West Country waters and drying harbours but in the right hands she could cross oceans; and possibly with a greater degree of safety and comfort that owners of larger and lighter yachts might envy.

When new she was featured in the Sept/Oct 2008 Water Craft Magazine. Named Jessie & Zac after Nick's children in the tradition of many old West Country fishing boats, she received an enthusiastic write up and photographs by the magazine and a warm welcome by the local dolphins! Copies of the article can be e-mailed on request to interested parties.
