Owner Comments

Designed and built by Paul Gartside in 1978, in glued double-diagonal mahogany, this 16 foot overall half-deck Oysterman was the prototype for the Oysterman 16 class of boat. Purchased in 1983, Marie Louise has been progressively developed and restored to a high standard of finish. Now comprehensively equipped and a particularly attractive traditional yacht with many upgrades. Specification includes:-

Cutter rig with jack-yard topsail, set-up for single handed sailing with three slab reefs;
Recent tan sails with gaff mainsail, staysail and jib with Wykham Martin furling, also cruising chute;
Hollow mast and boom by Noble Spars in Columbian pine and hollow spruce bowsprit;
All Dyneema sail controls with reefing led aft to cockpit and halyards to bronze pin-rail;
All bronze deck fittings and much traditional rope work;
Icom VHF, Raymarine i40 log and echosounder, plus Raymarine chart plotter;
Nanni 10hp diesel inboard, 2009 – 300 hours and like new;
Epoxied bottom and encapsulated lead ballast keel;
Overall winter cover with windows;

All in sail-away condition, ashore in Topsham and available for viewings.

An exceptional traditional gaff cutter now seeking a new owner - a gem at £12,500 or near offer at less than half new build price.

Four-wheel road trailer, custom built - available if required.
