Lovingly Restored Classic 5676

Originally built in 1961 by .”Snipe” boats.This would make a good family first boat or for an introduction to racing.

It’s is a restoration project fresh from my workshop, a balance of conservation and modernisation.

It is fully rigged in all respects and ready to go on the water.

Hull has been epoxy sealed , painted/varnished inside and out.

Some parts are new:

Decks, bulkhead, transom, centreboard knees and rudder stock.

Others are refurbished:

rudder blade, centreboard etc.

There are split control lines for kicker and downhaul.

3 mainsails 2 of which are reduced in size as cruising sails and 2 jibs.


All are reasonable. Sail numbers do not match the boat number. All sails are in reasonable condition.

Boom is a Super Spa and the mast a Proctor D, well used but OK.

Forestay and jib halliard are new.

There is a “Snipe” combination trailer with new tyres, also a box of various useful bits of chandlery and spares?


Viewing encouraged. I’m in North Yorkshire. Full details and plenty of photos available on request.


Proceeds of the sale will go to Parkinson’s UK.
