  Lady Corinne 12 Ton Timboline 12 Ton Trooper 9 Ton    Lady Ailsa 9 Ton Cutter   Winsome 4 1/2 Ton



I have had this old girl for a few years ago but had to take her out of salt water two years ago and an awful job by a 'ship wright' means she is taking in rain water.
She's in Sandwich and I'm in Guernsey.
I would say she is heading towards poor from good state and needs someone to love her. I have had offers which I rejected because they were live aboards
If someone wants her she's there on the the proviso I can visit stay on her when she's back in the water and come out when she sails again. The outside has some wet rot mostly above the waterline no navigation engine hasn't run for 18 months but she will. (After a shed load of smoke lol) I have the sales over here in the garage the mast is down and she needs a new galley (serviceable at the moment but no cooker)
Please help her find a new home her name is Zuzu and she is  on the register. Already had a new grant (oh refurb on the cover last year) inside still good.
Thanks in advance

Nantua  9 ton

I have owned her for 16 years now and have enjoyed her enormously. I have less and less time to spend on her upkeep and little opportunity to sail.
 We did a lot of work on her decks and hull in 2010 and s
he still needs a little finishing work in the aft cabin, saloon and brightwork overall. Other than that she is sound.
She is moored at Oare Creek, near Faversham, Kent

I'm offering Tala Hinna for sale. Built as a centre cockpit 9 Tonner in 1966, she has been rebuilt to a high standard with an aft cockpit and an interior much better suited to extended passages. I've uploaded details of the boat to:

where there's comprehensive information and an inventory. (Please note that I may be selling the Walker Bay dinghy and outboard separately, but I intend Tala to have a tender of some sort when sold). She's presently afloat in the Plymouth area and I intend hauling out at Voyager Yachts, Millbrook, Cornwall in July/August.

"Anne" - 4 Ton
Hello all Hillyard - enthusiasts
Next to my Vertue in Kampen (Netherlands) there is a very nice and clean 4-to Hillyard "Anne" ( 6,50 x 2,20 x 1,10 m) to be seen and for sale. She is afloat, but in need of painting and caulking. She is empty, her joinery had been taken out, but is to 75 % existing and could easily be reinstalled. Her plankwork is pitchpine and is sound. From the inside she is very clean.
There is a 7 hp 2-stroke Vire engin to be installed. "Anne" has a nice good teakdeck and mahogany- superstructure.
She is  gaff rigged with bouwsprit and as-new sails. Mast, gaff and gig varnished and in good order, also all her rigging. The hatches are as new. There is some work to be done to the small deep cockpit, i.e. the cockpit sole.
All together: after the words of the head Mr. Bakker of the renowned "Kroes" boatyard, where "Anne" is moored, during winter ashore under cover, "Anne" is absolutely sound, but needs some reconditioning.
"Anne" is owned by the Kroes- yard. They ask 3000 Euro, which means about 2.600 British pounds or maybe a bit less, a bargain indeed.
Please contact Mr. Bakker ( , there you will see the advertisement under "te koop" together with 3 fotos of "Anne"). His mail address:, his telephone number: 0031 383312684

 Lady Corinne -12 Ton

Lady Corinne
For Sale - Our cherished 1939 12 Ton Hilyard Ketch "Lady Corinne"

A beautiful 45 foot overall double ended, carvel planked hull with
Pitch Pine planking on Oak Frames she was started in Littlehampton  in
1939 and the hull was completed before the yard turned its attention
to the war effort.  During the next few years she lay in a mud berth
where the salt water preserved her timbers until she was finished and
commissioned in 1945 She was the first boat to leave the Hilyard yard
after the war.
She has had a colourful life including many years as an RAF training
ship after being bought to replace one of the windfall yachts gained
from the Luftwaffe which was dashed on the rocks somewhere off the
French coast.  We returned to Chichester last year after a 16 day
Transatlantic crossing from the Cape Verde Islands to St Lucia in the
Caribbean after which followed an extended cruise around the Islands.
The final chapter saw us enter her for the Antigua Classics in 2010
where we achieved 2nd in class and second place in the Privately
Maintained Concours de Elegance.  In spite of her years this Lady is
still turning heads - a true beauty she really is a gem and is much
admired everywhere she goes getting praise from lots of passing boats.
 She has a ton of solid Douglas Fir for her main mast together with a
beautiful 8' Bowsprit and a short Bumpkin.
