For Sale - “Polly Garter” 22ft Itchen Ferry


     This well found yacht is for sale as she was purchased before my new boat arrived and is now one too many.

 Polly Garter has great room; four berths plus headroom, galley, and heads.

The diesel engine is in very good condition.

Excellent sails and rigging and is a very dry boat. I have kept up with most maintenance and as a consequence she needs minimal expenditure (perhaps new weather boards)

      Very seaworthy and ideal for exploring upper reaches and visiting coastal ports. She is to be sold as is with all bits and pieces.

Yanmah YSE8 diesel, very good condition, new exhaust fitted 2015, New stainless steel water tank fitted 2016, Cockpit cover new in 2016,  Two burner stove and grill,  Manual toilet,  Four good sails including Plastimo furler,  Steering compass,  hand held compass,  Good upholstery to main and forward cabin,  Two batteries with solar trickle chargers​, Various cutlery,plates etc, Various Tools and spares.

Polly Garter is berthed at South Hooe - if you would like to inspect her please contact me via email.

The price for “Polly” is great value at £2000

 and reflects the little bit of cleaning required

 on her topsides after  a season of little use.
