Location Lymington Yacht Haven.
Year Built 2006

This is a reluctant sale of a beautiful boat. Built in 2006, the hull and deck are in excellent condition. The aluminium spars are a huge advantage especially for winter storage and maintenance. All the standing and running rigging is good condition.

Moonstone has been stored ashore under cover each winter. Old antifouling is removed each year before renewing. The hull and keel have been excellently maintained by Baker Marine.

In its current configuration, the boat is set up for racing, but stanchions for cruising are safely stored away to be transferred with the boat.

The boat can be viewed by arrangement, or detailed photos can be sent.

Sail No GBR F 733
Location Lymington
Year Built 2004

Built by Folkebad (Denmark) in 2004, the Nordic Folkboat is popular as both a racing yacht and cruising yacht, with a traditional classic look and sails like a dream.
Freedom is a proven race-winner in the Solent.  She is constructed in GRP fibreglass, with a wooden mast and jib-pole, and aluminium spinnaker pole.  After stripping all antifoul, refairing the keel, and repainting with epoxy, she has been dry-sailed this year.

Show more

Her hull and keel are in brand new condition, ideal for racing.  All topside woodwork was reconditioned in 2021, and looks as new.  She carries a fractional spinnaker, new in 2021, and jib and main are new in 2022.  The main halyard and outhauls were replaced with Dyneema in 2021.  She weighs in at 1960kg, less than 30kg over the minimum weight under class racing rules.  Comes with a spare cruising main and jib.  For cruising, a custom made infill creates a large, comfortable double berth.  Price includes a Harbeck road trailer and cradle in excellent condition.

She’s been in my ownership for the past 21years.

Fully rebuilt and commissioned sum 20 years ago, following a lengthy spell on the hard. (some 15 years). Full details available on request, supported by photographs. Including new keel bolts, new oak floors etc. entire new cockpit, coach roof etc…

I’ve just completed a major overhaul over the last 4 years (part time!) on the hard.

She is rot free and leak free and ready for a new adventure

Do not mistake this for one of the many aging wooden yachts out there that are down on their luck having been neglected and abandoned to their fate. This little Folkboat is fully restored. I’ve worked on her for 20 years. I know every inch of her. Inside and out. Structurally she is totally sound. Aesthetically superb.
The only area that lets her down are the sails. They are all past their best and would benefit from a new suit.

Built By: Ahus, Sweden

Our Ref 20220222
Sail No F 662
Location Tollesbury
Year Built 1961

Hull: larch on oak (wooden mast and boom)

Deck: sheathed plywood deck (deck and coachroof sanded back, epoxied and finished in 2021 in white International Interdeck and Toplac. Her varnished topsides are finished in Epifanes.

Takk was transported from Malmo in 2019 where she had previously been lovingly cared for by the same owner for 30 years and maintained in great original condition. We even have the photos of her launch day in Ahus in 1961!

Show more

She was kept in the water (marina) for a year between Oct 2020 and Oct 2021 after most of the work was completed. She took up quickly and well. The hull and topsides are sound with no rot and look incredible for a 1961 boat.

Although there was no need for any structural work, I have spent two years fitting her out for cruising. I have subsequently lavished money and time on her, cutting no corners and trying to maintain a traditional aesthetic but using new technology where appropriate. She is being sold due to an unplanned house move and, as with all boats, at a huge loss! The new kit alone well over the purchase price. But somebody will be taking over a gem of a boat, with new and quality features throughout. She has not been used, so everything is new with no wear and tear.

Mahogany interior (with new bespoke sapele additions).

She has been fitted with a remote Torqeedo (sailboat) throttle (£750) in the cockpit for use with a powerful transom bracket mounted electric outboard engine (Torqeedo Cruise 2 R – perfect power and weight for a Nordic Folkboat which isn’t designed for an inboard engine). This is a great, light, quiet and clean system which means you have complete control of the outboard (in forward and reverse) from within the cockpit. The throttle display also shows battery charge state, range, speed etc. The outboard runs off a Torqeedo Power 24-3500 battery stowed forward of the starboard bunk and is included. It is a very elegant and easy system to use and the outboard can be attached to the main boat tiller to give even more directional thrust, great on a long keel boat. The engine and battery are in situ and available by separate negotiation. They are unused apart – battery has been charged constantly. This system can easily be removed if you choose.
