Merlin 950 Desperation for sale

Post by Michael4 » Fri May 27, 2016 3:14 pm

We've had our fun and it is now time to sell. There's a fair amount about her on this forum and I have plenty more pics etc so if anyone is interested please pm me. It goes without saying that I am aware of the short arms and long pockets of the CVRDA so sensible offers considered for her to go to a new good home

Merlin Rocket 950 'Desperation'
Built 1959
Proctor Mk VIII
Builder Jack Chippendale
Varnished inside and out
Hull and deck varnished this winter
Original Proctor mast and boom, drum kicker, very little string.
Original centreboard and rudder
Various sails including original 1959 Ratseys and current jib Hyde 2013, main Jeckells 2003
All buoyancy and lines etc, recent stays.
Compete with cover, trolley and trailer, ready to go and in commission.
Happy to delivery locally (Chichester) not perfect but in good shape and a real classic.
£600

These pics are from last year but little has changed since then and she over winters in the garage.

Chippendale built the most beautiful boats, surely some relation to the great furniture designer !
