Corby 35 Joyride = £5.000

joyride007.jpg
Vad sägs om en klassisk John Corby-båt från tidigt nittiotal. Till salu på eBay för en spottstyver. Korkat – men troligtvis skitkul.

The current owner however is finding it difficult to maintain minimum crews of 5-8 to race and as the boat is an “Extreme Open Racer” it must be crewed by professionals. It is ideal for day racing and passage racing, large sail area make for big fun, wet and wild speeds and massive wipeouts! This is not a boat for the faint hearted! She is a big dingy be warned when the rigging hums your in excess of 17 knts and at 20+ things start getting exciting!

Corby 35 Sailing Race Boat 35foot, Corby one design sailing boat for sale. This is the original and first boat designed by John Corby in 1991. The boat features a light weight glass fiber over wood construction, Harken winches and carbon fiber asymmetric spinnaker pole. The retractable carbon spinnaker pole is 16feet taking the sale area up to a 51foot sail racer! The boat has been sailing past 10 years from home port in Glasgow, Scotland and has continued to win races year on year. The current owner however is finding it difficult to maintain minimum crews of 5-8 to race and as the boat is an “Extreme Open Racer” it must be crewed by professionals. It is ideal for day racing and passage racing, large sail area make for big fun, wet and wild speeds and massive wipeouts! This is not a boat for the faint hearted! She is a big dingy be warned when the rigging hums your in excess of 17 knts and at 20+ things start getting exciting! Last sailing season the boat lost its rig while racing and insurance replacement arrived 2 weeks before end of season! So the boat features all new standing and running rigging, (new mast and running rigging, new main sail and new jib sail all with a little over one week of use!) The cost of replacement was £11,400 Also included and equipment attached are the following: 1 of spinnaker (one season old!) mast head, XL! 1 of spinnaker (one season old!) mast head Large! 1 of spinnaker (4 seasons old!) fractional Small! 1 of Jib (4 seasons old!) delivery and practice quality 1 of 8man life raft, off shore 3 of Harken winches 3 of Harken winch handles 4 of fenders 1 of flare pack 6 life jackets 6 harness / life lines boxes of spare rope, shackles and collected sailing gear and spares! radio, campus, Tactic wireless instrumentation and more. Note: you will need an outboard engine of 5 to 9 hp – our one is not included! This boat has everything to get out and enjoy fast cheep racing, the hull was rebuilt a few years ago and a complete new ply wood deck and fittings were added and fiber glassed to hull, this added strength and improved handicap rating. I will sell the boat and all included bits for £5000 – this would be a perfect boat for a sailing school or syndicate of friends alternatively break-up value of all the new items makes it a good investment for a boat builder or someone building a modern hull! The present location is in Scotland – however we have contacts to have her moved to any location in UK, and I would be happy to assist you in this at an agreed extra cost or you my collect. The boat is not in the water at present but will be ready to launch shortly – so now is the time to have her moved. Contact : Nick

    Sjukt mycket fart för pengarna! Hur seglar man hit den? :)

    Ser ut som en stor B&R 23a, jävligt hal!

    5000 är väl minsta nivån för ett bud snarare än ett begärt pris ? Om det finns intressenter kan ju buden dra iväg.
    Vad är det för mått på en sådan här båt ?
    Vad kostar det att köra hem på lastbil ?

    Är det möjligen en Kracer-krossare???

    Som referens: En Jeanneau 36a från franska västkusten till Tyska Östersjökusten kostar ca 40.000 i frakt (på kommersiella villkor), kanske lite mer nu när den svenska schlottyn fallit mot euron.. Det som kan dra iväg yttelrigare är att en lastbil ska åka färja / tunnel. Varför inte engagera några “galningar” som seglar hem den? Det är inte många dygn som krävs. Några dygn från Skotland är man i NOrge eller tom i Sverige.. Obekväm? Javisst men läs boken om Lille Orm – handlar om då Lasse Wallgren och Björn Nilsö seglade en jolle – ungeför som en triss / tvåkrona från Birka i Mälaren till Färöarna. Detta är rena lyxkryssaren jämfört med deras båt. Kanske det finns några “raid-galningar” som vill göra ett “äventyr över Nordsjön?”

    Kommentar från John Corby:

    Some of Joyride’s gear, eg the rig, is quite recent so if anyone buys it with a view to using the bits on a new hull I would be delighted to design a new boat for them free of charge. Definitely twin rudder but the stringer/frame/moulded ply construction would still be suitable.

      Kunde inte låta bli att le lite när jag såg i annonsen vad “begärt pris” heter på nederländska – Vraagprijs. Min hjärna läste “Vrakpris”… :-)

    En liten anekdot: Under sitt första år, på Cowes Week, sprack Joyride: Hela däcket separerade från skrovet.
    Rätt kexigt byggd.
