I have a 27 foot motor boat, and would like to add a tender. I was thinking about one of the little lugsail dinghies of the type hired by the boatyards. Does anyone have any good ideas about how I might track one of these down?
Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

A few thoughts on this - For a local option Barrow Boats at Loddon do a range of such dinghies as kits, part finished or fully finished. If you're really enthusiastic and want to make one yourself on a budget then both Selway Fisher and Fyne Boats offer a range of plans. Hunters Yard build their own. I've no idea whether they use an available set of plans, but a word with Graham or Ian at the yard would probably clarify that. It you want easily maintained GRP, then John at Whispering Reeds may be able to suggest an option, as they have such boats for hire, and must either make them or have a supplier.

Hope that helps

Hi Steve,
Sutton Staithe boatyard are agents for new grp dinghies, sure I saw one advertised for around £300, although this was just a rowing version. Most have a centreboard case moulded in, which can easily be opened up to convert one to a sailing dinghy. Have a look at www.suttonstaitheleisure.co.uk.

Give Royall's a try.

I'm sure he makes the coypu dinghy which is very good for beginners and very difficult to get water inside.



Gary.
Real sailors do it in dinghies.

Hi Steve

Not quite answering the question but we have a 9foot Bobbin dinghy which we are selling in the spring. It is strong grp, rows and has sails on alloy spars even has a seagull outboard. We have used it as a tender for years but are changing as the kids have got a mirror.
If its of interest let me know.

Andy
