This boat was built by a master carpenter by trade. Who has build several other vessels, and even the garage the boat is stored in for the winter.
This is a John Marples Constant Camber 26′ (multihull guru desinger known for Sea runners and Sea clippers).
West System epoxy laminated wood Constant Camber panels sheathed in fiberglass. Three sails, 5 HP outboard, Harken roller furler, 8′ sailing dinghy, recent paint job, VHF radio, running lights. Ready to sail.
This is a more than capable coastal cruiser for 1 – 2, with day-sailing easily of 4 .
If you aren’t stuck on owning a Farrier, take a look at this boat. It can be singlehanded, kept on a mooring or trailered, and is in ready to sail condition with minimal maintenance required. If you haven’t heard of Constant Camber design, stop over at the searunner website to read about it. It is stronger than fiberglass, and with fiberglass sheathing offers the best of both worlds.
Excellent condition dual axle aluminum trailer has replaced the older trailer shown in some pictures.
This boat weights just over 2000lbs, and can be trailered reasonably well as such. Just learning it can take up to 2 hours to setup with 2 people, but with enough experience, two individuals can launch this boat in under an hour.
Some videos of trailering, sailing, and others available upon request. As well as numerous other recent pictures.
Draft is 1’5″ with centerboard up, 4’7″ with it down.
