Supplied by Martin Heard of Gaffers and Luggers in 1996, Saunterer was built to a high specification by this specialist yard in Mylor, near Falmouth to the proven design specification based on the traditional Mevagissey Tosher, with the popular Volvo 2010 installed when new, providing up to 6.5 knots speed under power.
Saunterer was built as a 20′ dayboat and supplied new for the present owner, who has maintained her to a very high standard – always wintered ashore in a small barn on her custom-built trailer, which has never been in salt water.
Conventionally rigged as a gaff topsail cutter – all highly varnished Columbian pine spars and sails/rigging in exceptional condition.
All up weight at 3,500 kgm inc. trailer can be efficiently (and legally) towed by the popular Land Rover Discovery and Defender, also some Mitsubishi and Isuzu similar vehicles.
Owner is now retired and only selling for reasons of less time available, we consider Saunterer is probably the very best Tosher on the market and available at £11,900 or near offer.
Call Mike for more detail and his considered opinion, after nearly 40 years of enthusiastic gaffer ownership!
A quarter-deck gaff cutter, with large cockpit area, built September 1994, by Martin Heard, Gaffers and Luggers, Tregatreath Boatyard, Mylor, Falmouth for myself, the present owner. The perfect family boat and yet, easily sailed single handed.
All in all, Saunterer is in exceptionally good condition. She was launched late in June of this year and is moored in the Milford Haven estuary in Pembrokeshire. She is now for sale because of a recent health problem and I am hopeful that she will be bought by someone who will value her, enjoy her and continue to give her plenty of tlc.
