We bought Little Egret as our “retirement” boat and have kitted her up for extended coastal and occasional offshore cruising. We have found her to be an exceptionally safe and seaworthy boat to sail shorthanded, as well as being supremely comfortable in the English Channel “Chop” when the wind starts up. However, unexpected changes in our plans mean that we will be unable to sail for a couple of seasons and so it seems right to offer her (regretfully) for sale.

Available to view by private appointment. - See notes below.

Please note all of our listed yachts are privately owned and berthed at their owner's home port in different marinas along the UK south coast and are not located at one central office.

Therefore, for private views, we will drive to the yacht's individual marina location to meet you at a pre-arranged day and time. As the yachts are sometimes several hours drive along the coast, requests for private appointments should be made only when the yacht is on your radar as a potential purchase.

In the meantime, the majority of our yachts now have online video tours, allowing you to assess the yacht's layout and potential suitability from the comfort of your home, before booking a private view.
