West Coast Yachting Ltd image

West Coast Yachting has been the leading independent broker in the Argyll area of Scotland since 2009, successfully selling yachts on behalf of our continuously growing list of clients

Our service is built round attention to detail and knowledge of your yacht - with considerable marine industry experience we know what we're looking at and will always advise accordingly. We share our passion for sailing and the West of Scotland with our buyers who often travel significant distances to view our boats, and this familiarity with the area means we are best placed to advise on a marketing approach to sellers wherever their yacht is based.

All yachts are personally visited and photographed prior to listing. We are associate members of ABYA and as such abide by their Code of Pratice, and use ABYA standard contracts and documentation which we believe provide the best possible legal protection for buyer and seller alike. All funds are transferred via a bank-protected Client Account at Lloyds TSB, and we carry both Marine Trades and Professional Indemnity insurance with full Public Liability cover.

Whether you're buying your first boat, selling your last, or at any stage in between, we are here to help you make it happen.

Tregella is a very fine example of a late-1960's style gentleman's motor-sailer yacht. Built in Appledore, North Devon in 1967 at the yard of J. Hinks & Son (perhaps most famous for the replica Golden Hinde, completed soon after), she displays the quality of which is now, sadly, a bygone era. From the board of the much-respected Walter F. Rayner, best known for the Atlantic and Pacific ketches.

Mahogany-planked on close-spaced oak frames, the hull is very fair (most likely splined, TBC) with fine deep-blue topsides. The underwater area of the hull is also smooth and fair, ensuring she remains easily-driven.

Inside she retains the traditional charms of the era, with mahogany slatted 'ceilings' in the cabins (rather than full linings), making the hull structure visible and allowing everything to breathe as it should in a timber hull. She is a handsome craft, but at her size her fine lines do not mean reduced interior space and the saloon in particular is pleasantly large with very good all-round visibility.

Power is provided by a fresh-looking Perkins 6-354, naturally aspirated, giving around 100hp. The engine has only logged 1000 hours and no expense has been spared on maintenance. Tregella also has the distinct advantage of being fitted with a 6KW diesel generator in the lazarette, allowing such luxuries as a microwave (fitted), hair dryer (don't underestimate!), hot water when at anchor or the possibility to fit air-conditioning for warmer climes.

Although predominantly a motor-boat, her ketch-rig with modern roller-furling headsail also gives good stability, fuel saving and the opportunity to make passage under sail alone when conditions are right.

Tregella is a much-loved boat in the same ownership for many years, and is a well-known sight around Crinan and the Clyde cruising area. All will attest that she is never seen looking anything less than her best, and she is a credit to the owner's dedication over the years. The time has now come when she must go though, so all interested parties are invited to make contact. Currently (November 2012) afloat in Crinan harbour, she is available for any inspection or demonstration, and can be brought ashore easily for survey. Expected to be in the shed at Crinan Boatyard later in the winter.

Price now further reduced making her highly competitive compared with other wooden motor-sailers on the market.
