An excellent opportunity has arisen to purchase a 72 foot Robert Clark Ketch which has undergone a major refit. The refit is 90% complete, the hard work is all done!

'Hartlepool Renaissance' was originally named 'Scott Bader Commonwealth' after a company sponsor and was built by and for the Ocean Youth Club as a sail training vessel.  She was purchased from them in 1991 by the Faramir Trust who carry out the same sort or role for under privileged children and underwent an extensive refit at the time.

In 2002 the Faramir Trust combined with The Sailing Trust, she was incorporated in to the Cirdan Fleet. She has been well maintained by the trust, going through a thorough refit/ maintenance program each year to keep her up to the standard and safety expected of a vessel with such a role.

Owners Comments:
We purchased the vessel in 2006, stripped out all but the bulkheads and structural assemblies. Ground off hull from boot top down, re-laminated with ‘Wests’ epoxy system, giving her 4 layups of woven rovings. Fitted new bow thruster, new plumbing for radiators and heating, shower and hot and cold pressurized water. Re-wired throughout, all old systems replaced. New invertor/charger. Engine checked and serviced. Alternator overhauled. Re-fit ongoing.


Forward cabin – either bunks or en-suite to master.

Hanging room – second heads

Finish galley – install cooking facility (at present 2 ring origo)

Re-gas and run up freezer motor

Decide and fit new floor as boards are old and mismatched.
