Summer Sailing

Resim
This weekend, 6/7th July, saw the start of the Dartmouth Classic Channel Regatta, with two days of racing outside the harbour. We were there aboard our 43′ Camper and Nicholson ‘Zircon’, fresh from a 2 week refit and looking very smart. We had high hopes that the quality of th boat would make up for our lack of sharp racing skills, however it was not to be! Saturday brought very light winds which made the beat to the windward mark long and tiresome in the strong tide. Used Boat for Sale and Used Yacht for Sale It was clear not long after the start that the course would be shortened from the original 4 laps, and as it was very few boats even managed to complete 2 before the end of the afternoon. Our maximum boat speed during the race was a heady 3.1 knots which was greeted with utter delight and a celebratory beer.

Regattas and Sun

It has been a busy summer for us here, with the weather playing a large part I am sure. Our purchase of a new boat last winter rather put the pressure on to get her ready for the summer season and take part in some of the fantastic Classic yacht regattas we have on the south coast. Several weeks of stripping and varninshing in the early opart of the season and 2 weeks of hard work in the yard saw our C&N Zircon looking very smart and ready to go racing.

The Dartmouth Crab regatta was the first stop and with a great turn out of yachts and a very relaxed but well organised programme, it was a great few days of sailing and partying. Unfortunately our racing skills didn’t quite match our expectations and we found ourselves making tea ½ mile downwind of the start line when the 5 minute gun went! Sunday was a little more suc

Without doubt she’s a classic

In the last 6 months we have had several owners approach us with boats they wish to sell that are a little out of our comfort zone and do not quite fit our normal remit. The issue for us with these few boats is that they are fibreglass, and being solely brokers of wooden yachts for over 35 years means that taking on a fibreglass yacht is a big step. Boat for Sale When Peter first started Yachts Markt, many of the yachts we were selling were relatively new, but the era of fibreglass had arrived and everybody wanted a yacht in the new material. Fibreglass was expensive but the wooden yachts had dropped in price, and if you sailed into a marina at that time in a 1960’s wooden yacht, people would look and say “poor chap, he can’t afford a modern boat”.

Scandinavian Sailing

For the last few weeks I have been skippering the top gallant schooner Activ in the southern Baltic, and as always over here, have been treated to a delightful fleet of traditional boats in both Germany and Denmark. They do not have so many yachts as we have in UK, but they have a bigger fleet of traditional boats in the form of rebuilt and converted fishing boats and cargo boats. Boat for Sale The Danes produced many thousands of fishing boats, usually built of oak on oak, and mostly with their signature elliptical counter stern that is so exquisitely beautiful. As in UK, many of these boats were broken up on the beaches when the EU changed the fishing rules, but many survived and are sailing today as either charter boats or private yachts.

Yachts Market Archives

After more than 35 years of running the brokerage, we have built up a long list of boats and yachts we have either sold or inspected all over the world. Up until last autumn, these archives were a slightly disorganised mess in the cellar below our office. Yacht for Sale , World's largest selection of brokerage boats for sale by professional yacht brokers with new, used, sailing, power and super yachts for sale. However, after wasting far too much time looking for past information on particular boats, it was decided that something had to be done. This was not a job to be relished, however the task was given to Richards mother Pam Gregson who has spent many hours locked in the cellar going through mountains of paperwork and box loads of old photographs. Boat for Sale The result of four months hard work is a very well organised set of filing cabinets with details of over 5000 boats going back the last 35 years. The paperwork is backed up with many thousands of photos, most of

Antigua classic

One of the benefits of working in this game is being able to mix business with pleasure, and that is exactly what I am doing this week after accepting an invitation to skipper a yacht for friends in the Antigua Classics regatta. The boat is a gaff yawl designed and built by Spirit Yachts of Ipswich. true to Spirit form she has a spade rudder and fin & bulb keel which I think is a very interesting combination with the more traditional rig. Boat for Sale After a day out practising with our crew on Thursday, we lined up in the first start of the regatta on Friday with high hopes, and we were not disappointed. It was a long reach to the first mark in a good F5 with typical Atlantic seas.

Sailing trophies in the sun

After four superb days of racing off the south coast of Antigua this week, we have managed to steer Spirit of Callisto to first place in class. Lying in second place after day 3 we had it all to do, and with the course and conditions in our favour we managed to get the gun and the overall win. Yacht Market The second day had brought very challenging conditions with winds up to 3o knots and a decent sea running, the heavier boats in our class came into their own with the exquisite gaff cutter Holly Mae, owned and sailed by Joff Rorke, powering around the course under a deluge of white water and deservedly taking the winning gun.

Charter sailing on a wooden ship

We have recently launched another section of the web site focusing on traditional charter vessels. Although not our core business, we have teamed up with good friend and owner of Bessie Ellen, Nikki Alford, to utilise our web site to promote not only Bessie Ellen but also Irene, another West Country trading ketch from the early part of the 20th Century. Nikki has been running Bessie for many years now doing everything from carrying cargo to sail training with disadvantaged youths, however the majority of her time is spent taking people on sailing holidays and providing them with superb experiences and first hand knowledge of what it is like to sail a traditional vessel.

Benefits of shared boat ownership

Resim
Every boat owner, whether they have modern plastic or a traditional yacht will testify to the ever increasing running costs of their boat, berthing fees, insurance, haul out, antifoul paint! As we all know, if there is a picture of a boat on the front the price will triple. Yacht for Sale , World's largest selection of brokerage boats for sale by professional yacht brokers with new, used, sailing, power and super yachts for sale. This is something we are hearing more and more these days and is a huge deterrence for many people thinking of buying a yacht, buyers these days can afford the purchase price but the annual running costs are putting them off. It has occurred to us in the past, and to many other people, that shared ownership is potentially an easy and simple way to spread the costs of the boat and to also ensure that she gets used properly throughout the season rather than leaving the mooring one weekend a month.

So you want to buy a boat

Peter Gregson, who started Yacht Market Brokers nearly 40 years ago, will be writing a series of blogs entitled “So you want to buy a boat?” about the process of buying a yacht, what to look out for and how to make the whole process as smooth as possible. Part 1 of this series starts below. Sometimes the most obvious things are right in front of us and we don’t see them. Used Boat for Sale and Used Yacht for Sale I was recently asked “How do I buy a boat”? A simple question but for the beginner it can be more complicated than just handing over the money.
