For Sale  SOLD – ‘MAI POY’ Newbridge Corromandel (Junk Rigged)-sold Dec 2014

Believed to be post 1980 hull, based on; skeg mounted rudder, asymetric bilge keels and deeper hull form (improves headroom). This boat has been lightly used on a seasonal basis throughout her life, much of which was in fresh water, and is always wintered ashore. She is all white original gel coat (no paint hiding osmosis) with a blue band below the rubbing strake. Small Ships Registered SSR119443.

Extensive inventory including two complete junk rigs, the original Newbridge sail which is still usable and all the wood; Yard, boom and spars are in excellent condition. There is also a virtually unused Sunbird Marine hinged spar rig /sail with all new aluminium yard, boom and spars purchased new at a cost of £2,500. In addition the mast can be fixed hull stepped (slightly shorter) or using a lower stub and original Newbridge transition piece, can be hinged at deck level for easy raising and lowering. All rigging for both options.



She is sitting on a break back road trailer which I recently used to tow the boat home from storage to check the boat over and brakes tyres etc were fine. There is also a launch trolley but I have been crane launching since I owned the boat. The boat is covered with a tailored PVC winter cover.

Inventory also includes: (Many items recently purchased)

10 kilo plough anchor, 25 metres chain, 50 metres warp
8 kilo fisherman anchor 5 metres chain
2 x 25 metre mooring lines

MOB ring with auto light
Porta Potti
Clock & Barometer
Teak Grate for cockpit sole (bespoke)
Various rigging / emergency spares, anti fouling, detailed rigging and instruction manuals and loads of junk rig sailing information

Changed circumstances have made me decide to part with Mai Poy, I was originally intending to prepare her for sale next season as she has been standing for almost 3 years now, but if you want a boat now and are prepared to undertake the cosmetic work; varnish wood work, the usual headlining problems to tidy up and renew anti foul.

For Sale – Fulmar-Sail No 162 Bilge Keel Mk2 Corribee For Sale £2500 ono (Posted July 2014)

Currently afloat at Gosport and anti-fouled for the season. New roller furling headsail fitted 2009 and main replaced 2006 with 2 reefing points and lazy-jacks. New stainless steel tabernacle fitted 2009 and all standing rigging replaced 2006. Auxiliary power provided by a Mercury 4HP outboard, weathered but functional and includes external fuel tank. A leisure battery also provides power to the log, echo sounder and nav lights. Other equipment also included are CQR anchor with 20m chain, dodgers, horseshoe lifebuoy, fenders, warps and boom cover. Internally the windows have been replaced, the headlining renewed and the bilges have had a fresh lick of paint this season.

We have owned Fulmar since 2007 and cut our teeth sailing her around the Solent for day trips, extended weekends and summer holidays, unfortunately a change in work commitments has curtailed any future plans (roll on early retirement). I have just revarnished all the exterior woodwork and manufactured new wooden washboards which has added to her appearance. She is ready and waiting for her next venture, please contact Andy on 07773393968, or email for any further information or to view.










For sald SOLD “Maridadi” bilge keel Mark 3 Junk Rig Corribee (posted July 2014, sold in just 3 days!)




Maridadi moored to pontoon at Maidens Harbour for the winter 2011/2012

Equipment: VHF radio, NASA depth sounder, Plastimo bulkhead steering compass with light, brass barometer and clock, Autohelm ST1000, Yamaha 4 h.p. outboard, Sevylor 2-person dinghy with oars, Fortress anchor with chain + anchorplait, Butterfly paraffin pressure stove, canvas dodgers, Plastimo horseshoe lifebuoy, toolbag with essential tools, boathook, fenders, warps, plus many charts, pilot books, etc.



I have had 12 years of enjoyment sailing Maridadi around virtually two thirds of the UK coastline, mostly single-handed. Reluctantly, however, ill health and advancing years now force a sale.
Due to some neglect over the past couple of years the boat really needs a little TLC, e.g.
(1) a few superficial scratches on the stbd side of the GRP hull need sanding down and the topsides can then be freshly painted,
(2) the wood rubbing strake needs some repair work,
(3) The vinyl upholstered berth cushions also need to be recovered. Hence the asking price of £(SOLD).
With her comprehensive inventory of equipment, Maridadi could put to sea in its present state after receiving a new coat of antifouling and giving the almost new Yamaha 4 hp outboard engine (only used 2 seasons) a routine service.
Maridadi is an ideal boat for any potential blue water sailors on a budget since the hull design is more or less the same type as Roger Taylor’s famous “Ming Ming” (before modifications) in which he made the truly epic voyages described in his recently published books.
Currently lying ashore South Wales.  Contact: (Details redacted-Ed)

Wanted – Sails for MkII Corribee (posted Jan 2014)

I purchased a Corribee Mk2 project from a well known auction site. The description and previous sale indicated an almost brand new set of sails with it which was the reason to purchase. By the time I collected the boat, the sails and anything worthy and moveable were gone. I ended up paying to dispose of someone else’s scrap and relieve him of berthing fees. It cost me a further £100 in fuel and a day off work for the pleasure! Caveat emptor!

As a result, I now require a set of sails for a bermudan rigged Corribee Mk2 alloy mast with a 3M boom. The foresail would be for a Plastimo roller furler. If you have a second hand/used/pre owned set or single sail you no longer need, I can give them a good home. Let me know what you have. Please email to establish communications. Apologies for this, too much spam hits my inbox.

For Sale – Yard trolley for a Corribee (posted Dec 2013)

I acquired this trolley with a Corribee late in the 2013 season from a couple in Gosport who have the good fortune to have the harbour at the end of their garden. I intended to use it to launch and recover the boat on to a flatbed trailer or car transporter, but after carefully measuring my hard standing don’t have enough room to maneouvre it, so have no need of the trolley. Condition is a bit knackered (some of the welds have parted) but serviceable and the tyres are all quite new. No sensible offer refused and it will be advertised elsewhere. Proceeds of sale will go to this website. Please contact Iain Ballantyne on 07956 977 503

Dimensions Width overall 6’9″ 210cm Width outside the beams 5′ 153cm Smallest inner width 3’6″ 106cm The docking arm is demountable with a height of 4’6″ 137cm This is a heavy beast. Just about possible for one fit man to lift.

For Sale BRILL CORRIBEE MK 2 FIN KEEL. (posted July 2013)

“Brill” is a Mk 11 Fin keel Corribee. Her hull has been repainted dark blue with a silver stripe, and is in top condition. Topsides in original cream and blue gel coat in reasonable condition. Teak grab rails and mahogany rubbing strake need treating and varnishing respectively. Bronze mast and boom. She has OK standing rigging, main, and jib; and could be sailed now – subject to replacement of the depth impeller! (new one supplied). Outboard bracket.





She has a bilge pump, NASA log and depth instruments – believed to be working but untested.

She comes on an excellent yard cradle, which is on four bogey wheels; so she is very easy to transport and launch using a car trailer. An excellent arrangement giving a lot of versatility in terms of where you sail and winter laying-up.

The interior has been largely stripped out ready for relining, re-wiring and refitting. Some ply panels pre-cut and a battery box fitted, with sink, tap and new twin gaz stoves and a clever swivel table leg mechanism, plus new spot lights and main light and switch panel supplied. Anchor and fenders and warps, horseshoe lifebuoy with cradle, and maybe some other bits, go with her.

“Brill” could be day sailed now; or would make an easy and satisfying project. I would love to finish her and sail her, but have too many projects and too little energy and time, so sadly she must go.

She is on her cradle, snug in a barn near Monmouth. I am asking £800 ono for a quick sale, complete with the cradle, which is surely a bargain. My copy of the excellent Corribee Manual is included.

Could arrange road delivery by arrangement. Pictures to follow. Please e-mail: or phone 01600 750444.

For Sale – Junk Rig Mk2, Mandarin Wind and 4 wheel braked trailer for sale.(25 Sep 2012) Mandarin Wind with Trailer £3750 I was told she was 1980 but the rear stamp cannot be made out, she has the design of this time. This has the original gel coat to all top sides. The hull has been stripped down, re undercoated, primed where necessary and repainted with epifanes lacquer finish in black above the waterline and red antifouling. The hull was found to be in very good condition with no signs of osmosis. (photo’s available). The insides have been stripped down and modified to the simplest layout.

2 round port holes have been added to each side as a previous owner had cut larger windows. The portholes are fitted into 12mm marine ply which strengthens the coach roof and give the more traditional style of the junk rig. A previous owner had started to make an engine well within the lazarette by cutting a hole (as in the coramandel) This was not finished and not right so has been filled and repaired exceptionally strongly with approx. 25mm of fibre glass and marine ply composite. The mast and sail are in very good condition and all kept undercover. The halyard and some other rigging are with the mast but needs a new main sheet for the junk sail and pos. some more bits of rope as with the junk rig. This is a lovely strong little yacht and ready to be further fitted to any individual requirement. I have removed all internal hull wiring and she has no instruments. The original stainless steel side nav. Light fittings have been reinstated but aren’t wired up. I have lots of photographs of her before, during the work and after. If you are interested, please email me for further photos and info. Very genuine reason for sale. Mandarin Wind is kept under cover at the bottom of my son’s garden in the North East not far from Newcastle. The trailer: This is a “transcontinental” 4 wheel, plated to 1.8T, braked trailer and works well as we towed the Corribee 380 miles to the North East with no problems using a Volvo estate car.

Her previous owners had her for several years, wintered her ashore and only very rarely ventured from her mooring in the summer. Last year we launched and sailed her from Exmouth to our mooring on the Fal calling in at Dartmouth, Newton Ferrers and Mevagissey. After day and weekend sailing we returned to Newton Ferrers via Fowey at the end of September and thence up the Tamar to Weir Quay where she was craned onto her trailer and towed home further up the valley. The survey we commissioned did not throw up any gremlins and the surveyor judged her to be structurally sound. She comes well equipped but would benefit from some cosmetic tidying inside. We have not been able to get her on the water this year but she is antifouled, on the trailer and generally ready to go. For Sale with or without the trailer. Please call John or Rosie on 01822 870665 or 07779264668.
