Clovelly Picarooner - Otter

Otter - A Clovelly Picarooner (with a difference) for sale. 

Her GRP hull was built at Mylor by Martin Heard. The gaff rig is based on the Winkle Brig sail plan to give more power, 

Fore and side decks (like her bigger sister the Tosher) were added to keep out the green water. Fitted with a tabernacle for ease of mast raising and lowering and a roller reefing jib.  Sale includes main anchor, chain & warp, a kedge anchor, fenders.

She has been sailed single handed in the Baltic where her best day run was 40 nautical miles and in the Scilly Isles where in 1984 she won the traditional boat category in the Round the Island race, Otter is very sea-worthy and sturdy craft and yet is easily trailable.

Not sailed for ten years she needs some tender loving care and the insides are desperate for a coat of paint. There are a few blocks, shackles etc that need replacing and the sails need laundering. She sits on a trailer that also needs some attention (new tyres). Soon I will have nowhere to store her so she is looking for a good home and an owner who would ppreciate her distinctive lines.

LOA 18 ft 6" (5.64m) includes 3 ft bowsprit, LOD 15ft 6" (4.73m)

Beam 6.0ft (1.83m)

Draught: Plate up 1.0ft (0.31m)

Draught: Plate down 3.0ft (0.92m)

Please contact me by  email with your telephone number, I will call you with more details on what needs some attention.
