Folkboat Lorema for Sale

UPDATE – The Folkboat Lorema has sold. Many thanks to everyone for sharing and helping her to find her new owner. I think she is going to continue a life of adventure and find plenty of blue water under her keel – far better than sitting in a shed under my ownership. Fair winds to her new owner!


– Antigua, 2015 –


I have taken on a new larger project, and I have to sell my wonderful folkboat ‘Lorema’. I am asking £8000 for a quick sale. It is important to me that this boat is kept alive and loved and sailed, and I am open to offers should the right person approach me. She needs to be sold this week while I am in the UK.

She was fully restored in 2013. She is built with Fir and Larch planks on Oak frames, copper riveted. Oak transom, Mahogany coach-house and trim.

She completed a transatlantic crossing in 2015 and won her class in the Antigua Classics Yacht Regatta that year (as well as a special mention in the Concourse d’Elegance and a ‘Smallest Yacht’ award).

She is beautiful and she sails beautifully. I lived on board for years and cruised many thousands of miles in her, and it is very sad for me to let her go. However, I do not have time to sail her now, and it would be even sadder for her to deteriorate unused in a shed. She is in a boatyard in the river Fal, very close to Falmouth.


She carries a wind-vane self-steering gear, a used suit of sails, a sculling notch and oar, a woodburning stove, a paraffin cooker (needs maintenance) and lamp, liferaft (needs servicing), a good CQR anchor with 60m of chain, and a lot of cruising gear (everything you need to cross oceans! …lots of lines, lifejackets, trailing log, sextant and tables, a very heavy storm anchor, handheld VHF, etc etc).


She has a decked-over cockpit, which gives a huge amount of interior storage space aft, and removes the risk of swamping the cockpit in large seas. It also provides a good platform for rowing the boat with the sculling oar, which provides slow but effective propulsion in calm conditions.


– Antigua, 2015 –


Her interior accommodation is small and basic but very cosy – she is very traditional and has no engine, no heads, no tanks, and few on-board electronics (only navlights, anchorlight, one cabin light, 12v speakers, automatic bilge pump, and a solar panel to provide power). She has two bunks in the saloon, which can be joined together to make a huge bunk the whole width of the boat. Two more bunks can be made in the forepeak if necessary.


She has been on the hard in a boatyard in Cornwall (outside for a while, and then in a shed) for over a year, and at some point needs some varnish-and-paintwork to bring her back to her full beauty, although she would be ready to sail away for the summer season once her mast is put back in (taken out for shed storage).


She is a classic wooden yacht, and as such requires a skipper with experience, patience and either the time or the money to keep her in good shape. She is in good general condition but has been well used and definitely needs some tender loving care. It is important to me that this boat is kept alive and loved and sailed, and I am open to offers should the right person approach me.


Her restoration in 2013 included replacing the following; topside planks, entire transom, beamshelf, several frames, much of the deck, soleboards, mast, boom, forehatch, tiller, cabin sides, keel bolts checked, etc etc.


I will be in Cornwall later this week (around 5th July) and can show people around the boat and assist a new owner with rigging her up etc. She needs to be sold this week.

  55. Hi! Anyone knows if the current owners are happy with her of if they would listen to offers for her!?
    I have found major rot caused by corrosion of the iron stepmast plates on my Buchanan east Anglian ’59…not sure I will be able to save her…and if not, would like to go for a but more simpler folkboat, not so much iron, lighter..Lorema is perfect..

  56. Clipping path is a must for any kinds of product images. Clipping Path Service can provide you with your desired product with a high-end view which will help you to attract both the organic customers and paid to add customers. Do clipping path for your business growth and show your customers what you have!

  57. I too had a Folkboat which I bought and sailed back from Norway,no engine,bucket and chuck it etc. I had 5 yrs of Brittany sailing , then a family meant that she was sold and I had another FB built by Eddy Wright in Weymouth which we had for another 5 yrs,,,,happy days some 59 yrs ago

  58. When I bought my 20′ Mermaid it was on the hard next her big sister Folkboat in Sausalito, CA

  59. This isn’t on the sale of Lorena but I just had to say she has some sweet lines to her

  60. She has a stainless steel ‘Pansy’ – a charcoal burner that I converted to a woodburner by welding a 3″ diameter stainless flue on, to replace the standard 1″ diameter flue. You can see the short flue coming out of the top of the cabin, and there is a 4′ extension that fits onto it and makes it burn really well when you’re not sailing. It works very well, though needs stoking every 5 hours max because it is small.

  61. She’s an incredible boat. I can see the love you’ve put into her….my compliments sir.

  62. I have neither the experience nor funds, having been funding the restoration of a 1950’s 21ft Easticks-built, A C Robb design for some years, but have loved reading about your adventures and hope Lorema finds a worthwhile home quickly.
