This Flying Fifteen was never finished, she was measured and certificated, I have all the paper work, this boat was in the loft of a workshop for over 55years, she was going to be burnt, but I saved her and did a full refit, she has only been sailed once in her life and that was in 2015, she is ready to sail, this boat is complete, she has a spare masts, road/launching trailer, this boat is unique.

I won’t be able to do the work I want to do on this boat for a long time so am looking for someone who will take it on and give it the renovation it deserves. I want to protect it from asset stripping so am offering the boat free to a good home providing the new owner persuades me he/ she is serious about renovation and makes a £500 donation to the RNLI for the trailer.
All wood Chippendale Flying Fifteen hull (no fittings) and keel on very little used road trailer. Hull looks in good order, decks need work and keel needs some tlc (but I’ve seen worse actually racing!). Currently sitting near Somerset-Dorset border (BA8 0RA). Please message me if interested
